Jane Lynch stopped by The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night and remembered her Glee co-star Cory Monteith, who was found dead last Saturday in Vancouver at age 31. "Cory's one of the biggest hearts, who was a real bright light," Lynch said. "He knew he was breathing rarified air . . . that he was a gift."

She continued, "He was quite generous and one of those adventurous types of people. . . . I don't think he left one day unlived." Lynch recalled a story of how Monteith paid to fly across the country to meet with a sick child whose wish was to meet him. "That's the kind of guy he was," Lynch said. "Just a real giver."

Season five of Glee starts September 19th. According to E!, the show is looking to add at least two more actors for its upcoming season.
