Darren Criss, along the rest of his Glee family, is mourning the loss of Cory Monteith who died suddenly in Vancouver Canada on Saturday. This week, Darren was scheduled to help promote his upcoming movie, Girl Most Likely, starring Kristen Wiig. But in the wake of Cory’s tragic passing, Darren has cancelled ALL of his television appearances, including spots on Good Morning America and Live! With Kelly and Michael.
But he did attend a screening of the movie last at Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York City with the rest of the cast. He wasn’t his usual smiley self when he walked the red carpet, and in tribute to his late friend, he sported a small black ribbon on the lapel of his suit.
The Glee cast has been mostly silent since Cory’s death. Naya Rivera, who plays bad girl, Santana, released a statement to the press that said in part, “”The entire Glee family and I are deeply saddened by this tragedy. Cory was and always will be a part of my own family and a good friend. He was a special part of this world and will forever be missed.”
And, Chord Overstreet, the goofy high school student, Sam Evans, kept a commitment to play in the Taco Bell All-Star Legends and Celebrities Softball game at Citi Field in New York. He dedicated a home run hit to the memory of Cory.
