‘Glee’ star Matthew stopped by ‘Live! With Kelly & Michael’ to talk about his new album, and he revealed that in the wake of Cory’s tragic death, the ‘Glee’ cast came together.
On August 2, Matthew Morrison opened up to Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan about how the Glee cast have been coping with the death of one of their own, Cory Monteith. He revealed that when they learned about his tragic passing, they all stayed up until 5am on the phone, because they took his death “incredibly hard.”
Matthew Morrison Gets Emotional With Kelly & Michael
Matthew, 33, became emotional and wiped his eyes when he was asked about Cory, 31. Speaking about how the cast are doing, he said:
I think the best we possible can be… I guess the good thing about when something like this happens is you know, we are such a family we really came together. I remember when it happened I was up ’til 5am talking to every single cast member. We all just reached out to each other, it was a bonding time, but it was incredibly hard.
He added that “Yeah, absolutely,” Cory was loved by everyone.
Poor Matthew. Like Lea Michele, Matthew worked closely with Cory since season one, and will face returning to the show without him on August 5.

While Matthew and the rest of the cast will return to the show soon, Lea is already back!
After Naya Rivera broke the news that Glee would resume on August 5, fans wondered if Lea would be ready to return so soon, but she went back even sooner!
“First day of glee today..And at my first wardrobe fitting for Rachel Berry for Season Five! I’ve missed her so much❤” tweeted Lea on August 1, showing that she is remaining upbeat.
This is her second positive tweet, as on July 31 she wrote, “Spending the day surrounded by great friends.. Hope you all are having a good day.. Sending lots of love to you all..”
Lea is so inspiring.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Do YOU think it is adorable that the Glee cast have bonded so much?
