Before Cory Monteith was singing in the showers on “Glee,” he showed up on “Supernatural” in one of his first-ever roles. Monteith made a guest appearance on the episode “Wendigo” as Gary, and while he didn’t last long, his high-pitched scream is certainly memorable.
We love Cory’s bandanna — but we don’t love how quickly he gets gobbled up by the monster of the week, an immortal, evil cannibal who lives in caves and can only be killed with fire.
“Wendigo” was the first episode of “Supernatural” shot in Vancouver, B.C.. Monteith is a native of B.C., and his Canadian accent was much more noticeable back then! Now that he’s playing Ohio native Finn Hudson, it’s harder to hear it.
Want to check out the scene in high definition? Season 1 of “Supernatural” comes out on Blu-Ray DVD this Tuesday, June 15. If Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles weren’t reason enough to pick up this box set, Monteith certainly is!
Monteith’s illustrious career continued despite his character’s untimely
demise on “Supernatural.” Immediately after filming this role, he
played “Frat Cowboy” on a 2005 episode of “Smallville.”
