    Multiple reports he was found dead today in a hotel in Vancouver. Press conference in a couple minutes.

    He was 31 and had been in rehab.

    This is depressing. I had hoped that he was going to get back on track after rehab.

    Really sad news. I remember being surprised to hear that he had problems earlier in his life.

    Same here. Said he started drugs when he was 13 and went to rehab -- I guess for the first time -- at 19 after his family staged an intervention.

    I have a lot of "Glee" music on my iPod, and it's going to be hard to listen to any of it now without thinking of him. Really sad. I was hoping rehab would have helped him.

    It will be interesting to see how the Glee producers handle this. I wouldn't say that the show revolves around his character, but he's also not a guy who can just disappear without an explanation.

    I'm not sure if they had started shooting any scenes for this fall, but the season opener will be intriguing.

    Anyways, R.I.P. I'd rank "Don't Stop Believing" and "We've Got Tonight" among my favorite Glee songs.

    My wife and I were talking about the show today.

    There is still a show without Finn, but it's not a very good show.

    Just so depressing on so many levels. Really was rooting for him to get clean.

    Drug demons are the worst.

    Yeah, it's such a burden being young, good-looking, famous and rich.
