"When I appeared as myself on 'Glee,'" Lipton said, "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."
