Jane Lynch Remembers Cory Monteith On Leno: “He Was A Bright Light”

Jane Lynch was visibly upset during an appearance last night on The Tonight Show as she remembered her Glee cast member, Cory Monteith, who died of an accidental overdose over the weekend. She recalled his giving personality and generous spirit, saying that he was a “bright light in our family.”

Aside from losing Monteith, Lynch has had a tough week, having filed for divorce from her wife of three years, Dr. Laura Embry, on Friday. But on the bright side, Lynch scored her third Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her performance as Sue Sylvester in Glee.
