The episode of the show where host James Lipton interviewed Monteith, as well as the entire cast of “Glee,” aired last year, but Bravo will repeat the episode on Thursday (July 18) at 6 p.m. ET.
“When I appeared as myself on ‘Glee,’ I auditioned Cory’s character, Finn, for the Actors Studio Drama School — and rejected him. That’s the way Ryan Murphy wrote it,” Lipton said in a statement. “I would have admitted him — in a New York minute. Of course you’ll want to know how Cory responded when I asked him the question, ‘If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?’ Cory’s God said, ‘Uh, sorry I haven’t been around. There’s a good explanation.’ I certainly hope there is. We needed Cory’s gifts.”
