The Bravo television network pays tribute to Cory Monteith, the 31-year-old "Glee" actor who was found dead July 13 in Canada, on July 18.



In memory of Monteith, Bravo is rebroadcasting an episode of "Inside the Actors Studio," hosted by James Lipton, that featured the young actor and his "Glee" co-stars.

The episode, which originally aired April 9, 2012, is being rebroadcast July 18 at 6 PM ET with an encore airing July 19 at 7 PM ET.

In a recent statement host Lipton said, "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. 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.”
