We guess now that Finn Hudson has graduated from McKinley High, it's time for him to grow on up!

We just didn't expect him to evolve so quickly into something so DARK!

Well, he may not be, but the actor behind the role, Cory Monteith, apparently will be for the upcoming action/drama McCanick!

That's right, the Glee star will be joining David Morse and Brandon Routh for the project, directed by Josh C. Waller, which tells the story of a narcotics detective who has to mercilessly hunt down a young criminal (played by Cory) who has been released from prison and apparently knows something about his past!

The director says in a statement:

"David has worked very closely with Daniel and I on this project and we honestly couldn't be any happier," added Waller. "This film is full of intense, emotional characters and I'm excited to see actors like Cory Monteith and Brandon Routh gravitating towards these roles that are, perhaps, very different than what they are known for."

YEAH! No SHIZ!

This sounds dark, gritty, and frankly, BAD-ASS!

And we ADORE the idea of Cory branching out and being given the opportunity to play against type!

This could be a really inneresting direction for his career to take!

Best of luck, boy! We'll DEFINITELY be checking this one out!

How about U?

    First of all… CORY MONTEITH is the one going criminal… Finn Hudson is a the character he plays on television. Let's distinguish the two!! And I can't wait to see CORY get to prove his versatility and talent! It is just such an exciting time for his career and this movie is going to be fantastic!

    So excited for this film and to see Cory Monteith branch out in new directions (yes, I went there) with his acting. I love his nuanced portrayal of Finn Hudson on Glee, and I'm excited to see what he brings to a very different role. I think we've only begun to see the huge range of talent Monteith has to offer — can't wait to see all that comes next for him.

    This sounds like a fantastic movie and the casting inspired. Cory Monteith always suprises people! He is such a great actor and i am sure will knock this out of the park. This and the movie he is shooting now All The Wrong Reasons sound as if he is making smart choices.
