Cory Monteith to Be Honored on GLEE's 100th Episode
Filming is currently underway for the highly anticipated 2-part 100th milestone episode of GLEE, airing Tuesday, March 18 and March 25th on FOX.
Many former cast members including Harry Shum Jr., who portrayed Mike, Amber Riley, who portrayed Mercedes, Mark Salling, who portrayed Puck and Heather Morris, who portrayed Brittany have all signed on to make an appearance. In addition, Kristin Chenoweth will reprise her hilarious role as April Rhodes, a figure from Will's (Matthew Morrison) high school days of Glee club.
The show's writing team is in the process of incorporating a storyline to honor late cast member Cory Monteith, who died of an accidental overdose in July of 2013. Last October, the letterman jacket of Monteith's character 'Finn' was featured in a moving tribute episode titled 'The Quarterback.' According to a photo posted on Instagram today, it looks as though another piece of clothing worn by the fictional football hero will also be featured in the 100th episode.
'Glee's' costume department member Rori Cruegsegger, shared a photo of Finn's football jersey, seen hanging in the team locker room alongside a commemorative plaque, with the caption #glee #lockerroom #missingcory #gleefootball. Check out the photo above!
As reported earlier, following the 100th episode, the series will be set entirely in New York City.
