In McCanick, the Glee star plays Simon Weeks, a drug addict being chased by cops following his release from jail, after being convicted of murder at 17.

Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel on July 13. An autopsy later showed that he died of "mixed-drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol," according to the coroner's report.

The Toronto Film Festival runs from Sept. 5-15.
