Vancouver Police say Canadian actor Cory Monteith, star of the hit show 'Glee,' was found dead in a city hotel.

He was found dead in his room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel on Vancouver's waterfront at about noon Saturday.

Monteith played "Finn Hudson" on the TV series about a high school glee club.

Deputy Police Chief Doug Lepard says there is no indication of foul play. Monteith's body was found by hotel staff after he missed his check-out time, Lepard said.

Monteith had voluntarily entered rehab for substance abuse problems in April.
