GLEEs-Chord-Overstreet-Dedicates-Orignal-Song-to-Monteith-20130722

In an exclusive interview with E! News, Glee star Chord Overstreet remembered his good friend and co-star Cory Monteith, calling him "the Greatest Dude You'd Ever Met." (watch interview in full here)

While performing a show in Los Angeles on Sunday, the actor dedicated an original song to the late Glee star. His castmates, Kevin McHale, Dianna Agron and Jenna Ushkowitz, sat in the audience to cheer him on.

"Never met anyone who said anything bad about him," Overstreet told E! after his hour-long set at The Roxy on the Sunset Strip. "Everybody loved him...I spent more time with him than I have with anyone in my family in the last three or four years...We're a family."

Overstreet's Roxy gig was the first time he performed live with a band. He hopes he made Monteith proud. "If he's out there watching," he said, "I would want him to look down and give me a high five."

In light of Monteith's death, production on Glee's fifth season has been pushed from July 29 until late August, the show's cocreator Ryan Murphy told E! News.

Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on July 13. Autopsy and toxicity results showed that the actor died of a drug overdose with heroin and alcohol found in his body. "This was an overdose and a tragic accident," Vancouver Police Department spokesman Brian Montague said at a press conference following the release of the autopsy findings.

A memorial service for the cast and crew is being planned for next week on the Paramount Lot in Hollywood.
