rs_634x1024-131008144756-634.lea.cm.10813It was an eventful day for part of the Glee gang.

Lea MicheleJane Lynch and Matthew Morrison were spotted dining at the Culina Modern Italian restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles today. Lea stunned in a multicolored, pleated Fausto Puglisi dress, while Lynch and Morrison were caught giving each other a sweet embrace.

At some point today, the trio also joined with co-creator Ryan Murphy at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for a Glee panel.

“Me, @MrRPMurphy @janemarielynch & @Matt_Morrison at the #HFPA #GLEE Panel..,” Lea Michele tweeted with a photo

“It was very difficult to shoot, and it was very difficult to edit. I only got through two tries,” Murphy exclusively told E! News of Cory Monteith‘s tribute episode (airing this Thursday).

“But it was done with a really pure feeling of love for him and I think that’s what that episode is about; treasure your friendships when you have them because one day they’re not going to be there. And for young people in particular, I think that’s a really sweet, kind message.”

“It was really emotional because I really loved Cory. And Brad [Falchuck] and I and Ian Brennan, who created Glee, all had very close, good relationships with him,” he tells us. “He passed away not so long ago, and we sort of were in a position where, what do you do when that happens? So we chose to write a tribute, not just to the character Finn that he played, but to Cory.”

Glee‘s Cory/Finn tribute airs this Thursday, Oct. 10 at 9 p.m. on Fox.rs_634x1024-131008144758-634.morrison-lynch.cm.10813Follow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
