1. Glee star Cory Monteith dies aged 31.

Glee star Cory Monteith, 31, was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver on Saturday.

The star died after consuming a combination of alcohol and heroin, and no foul play is suspected. TMZ have reported that he was ”clearly deceased” when police arrived on the scene.

Monteith voluntarily checked himself into rehab earlier this year in April, for substance abuse. He was spotted leaving the program in June. Monteith had previously spent time in rehab when he was 19-years-old.

Monteith was engaged to on-screen flame, actress Lea Michele, who said when he checked into rehab in March that she was proud of his decision, and would support him. The pair were to get married in two weeks.

In a statement released later in the week Michele’s representatives said: “Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she’s received from family, friends, and fans. Since Cory’s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them.”

“They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory’s family.”

The death gained a profound reaction on social media:

“Have no words,” his Glee co-star Dot-Marie Jones Tweeted. “My heart is broken.”

Kat Dennings said, “I can’t fully process this news. Tragic, tragic loss of a young, promising, talented man.”

Glee actor Damian McGinty recalled that Monteith was the “guy I shot my first acting scene with. The nicest guy I’ve met. Can’t believe it.”

And Kaley Cuoco said, “No words. Prayers. Thoughts w his family. This is terrible. Can’t speak.”

Later on in the week, Glee star, Jane Lynch, appeared on Leno for a pre-planned visit to promote her latest project and graciously answered questions about her co-star’s death.

“He was a bright light in our family,” she said.

When Leno asked how she would like people to remember him, she simply answered “He once flew across the country on his own nickel to meet a sick kid whose last wish was to meet him. That’s the kind of guy he was.”

Ryan Gosling was in Iceland this month to meet with the editor of his new film, How to Catch a Monster and as the world found out, the island nation can boast to having more than two Ryan Gosling lookalikes among its small 319,000 population.

Here’s what went down: the country’s newspaper Morgunblaði, mistakenly reported that the car Ryan Gosling was travelling in had been rear-ended in accident in the country’s capital, Reyjkavik.

Unfortunately for the paper, the scoop from several eye-witnesses turn out to be a Gosling lookalike rather than the real deal. The man in the accident was identified as 27-year-old Júlíus Pétur Guðjohnsen, who happened to be wearing a suit because he was on the way to a funeral. Awkward.

But that’s not the end of it, a blogger on the northern coast of Iceland one-upped the Morgunblaði by reporting on a local who they thought was a better lookalike, 17-year-old Bjarni Mark Antonsson [picture top left]. The Morgunblaðið paper then reluctantly reported that it had “received reports from the north of a young man who seems even more like Gosling.”

You have to agree that two in 319,000 are pretty good odds.
