Cory Monteith's final Philly role

Cory Monteith, the "Glee" star who was found dead in his Vancouver Hotel room on Saturday, filmed what will now be one of his final film roles in Philadelphia last year.

"McCanick," directed by Josh C. Waller, starred Chestnut's Hill's David Morse and Warminster-naive Mike Vogel. Morse plays Eugene "Mack" McCanick, a detective who, along with his partner (Vogel), hunts a criminal recently released from prison (Monteith).

Greater Philadelphia Film Office chief Sharon Pinkenson referred to"McCanick" as a "microbudget" film and a labor of love for all involved when it was shooting in Philly. The film does not yet have public release date.
