BEVERLY HILLS (AP) — “Glee” cast member Mike O’Malley say he remembers Cory Monteith, who died this month of an overdose, as a leader on the show.

O’Malley says Monteith, who played quarterback Finn, was the quarterback on the set as well.

O’Malley plays dad Burt Hummel on the musical. He told the Television Critics Association on Saturday that Monteith was a welcoming colleague and a talented actor.

He calls his former cast mate a great guy and says he’s missed.

The 31-year-old Monteith was found dead July 13 in a hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, and an autopsy revealed he died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol.

“Glee” is set to begin its fifth season on Sept. 26, a week later than originally planned, and a tribute episode to Monteith is planned.
