The body of Cory Monteith — who plays Finn on “Glee” — was found in a Vancouver hotel room yesterday, just after noon. Hotel staff discovered Montieth’s body after he missed his check out time. Montieth had been dead several hours before his body was found.

Police have not released a cause of death, although Montieth apparently has a history of substance abuse. Montieth was in a rehab facility as recently as last April.

Before he died, Montieth was with friends in Vancouver on Friday. He had spoken with director Adam Shankman early Saturday morning, saying that he’d wanted to come to L.A. and jet ski.

Montieth had been dating “Glee” co-star Lea Michelle.

Thirty one is too young.
