Cory Monteith snags first major movie role in “Monte Carlo”

Cory Monteith tweeted yesterday that he’s going to be filming a movie and linked fans to an article in The Hollywood Reporter about his role in the upcoming teen adventure flick Monte Carlo. Starring Disney starlet Selena Gomez along with Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester, Melrose Place‘s Katie Cassidy, and Andie MacDowell, the movie is an adaptation of the young adult novel Headhunters by Jules Bass about two girls mistakenly being flown to Monte Carlo for a charity auction and attempting to track down a million-dollar necklace in the process.

Cory won’t be straying very far from his role on Glee as he will be playing Gomez’s football player boyfriend in the film. The movie will be shooting in Budapest, Paris, and Nice, France, so although Cory won’t be getting much downtime during Glee‘s filming hiatus, at least he’ll be in some exotic locales! Congrats on the awesome gig, Cory!

    Hey, if Corey is acting with Leighton Meester, maybe there is hope for a future Blair/Rachel showdown. The Monte Carlo cast seems kind of odd, but I’m excited to hopefully see a little bit of a different side of Corey and Leighton, though both of their ‘traditional’ characters are awesome.
