It’s a poignant punctuation to the life of Cory Monteith.
The Glee actor, who died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, may be remembered for the last film he did — McCanick — which is about a drug-addicted street hustler.
Director Josh C. Waller is quoted as saying, “[Cory] was very vocal about his past and said he wanted to tap into things from his youth that he hadn’t been able to use as an actor yet.”
Cory is nearly unrecognizable in a still released to promote this very dark and depressing film.
In the movie, which will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, the 31-year-old actor plays Simon Weeks, a criminal who is released from prison but triggers a manhunt by two cops who are trying to hide their past.
