Cory Monteith may forever be remembered most for his role on Glee, but the late actor wanted more when it came to his acting career.
In one of his two last films, All the Wrong Reasons, he plays a manager of a grocery store whose marriage is falling apart under the strain of his wife's post-traumatic stress disorder.
"He was this big TV star who chose to do this small Canadian film and not everybody does that," Karine Vanasse, who plays Monteith's wife, said at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. "For him, he wanted to show his team, himself and his fans that he had all this other potential to develop and he wanted his career to maybe head in that direction."
She said, "He didn't want to be just Finn."
