A new clip from Cory Monteith's final film McCanick has hit the web, and in it the late actor plays a "young, drug addicted street hustler" who has just been released from prison, according to a plot synopsis.
This is definitely a far cry from Glee, and director Josh Waller tells Us Magazine:
- "The first time that we met he was pretty open about his past, and as it turns out, I guess he's always been very open about it, in terms of the press, which I think is very smart. Which means he was accepting it, and he said that he'd never really been able to tap into his own personal history … and I think he saw the character as a bit of a -- you know, here's that chance ... And [he] looked at it as an artistic experience but also something of a cathartic experience."
Monteith was found dead in his room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver on Saturday, and autopsy and toxicology results have yet to be released.
