Cory Monteith marvels at the hundreds of spectators gawking at "Glee's" every move. "It's a different element that you can't really anticipate," he says. "You just have to focus and try to stay in the zone." 

Karine Vanasse and Emily Hampshire also lead the ensemble cast for writer-director Gia Milani's feature debut now shooting in Atlantic Canada.

TORONTO – Glee star Cory Monteith, Emily Hampshire, Kevin Zegers and Karine Vanasse (Pan Am) have joined All the Wrong Reasons, the indie feature by writer/director Gia Milani now shooting in Halifax through mid-August.
