Photo from One of Cory Monteith's Final Movies Released

Photo credit: Eliza Morse/Bleiberg Entertainment(LOS ANGELES) -- Just a few weeks after Cory Monteith’s death from mixed drug toxicity, a photo from one of his last movies, McCanick, has been released. The film will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month.

“The character he plays is this drug-addicted street hustler,” director Josh C. Walker told Entertainment Weekly a while ago. “He was wanting to tap into things from his youth -- which he’s been very open about publicly. I think he saw the role as an opportunity for catharsis.”

Monteith, who was 31 when he died, struggled with addiction throughout his youth.

At one point, he told Parade magazine that he’d experimented with “anything and everything” and was “lucky to be alive.” In April, he entered rehab.

“If I can, through my experience, shed light on the way out of a difficult situation I know many kids are experiencing, you know, just like I did when I was a teenager, I mean, that’s huge,” he once said.

Photo of 1800s John Travolta Look-Alike Posted on eBay

GABRIEL BOUYS/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Could it be that John Travolta is a "vampire," much like Nicolas Cage was recently rumored to be?

Earlier this month, there was an eBay auction for a Civil War-era photo of a man who bore a striking resemblance to Cage.  The seller claimed the picture indicated Cage may be "some sort of walking undead/vampire, et cetera.”

This week, a similar photo popped up on eBay, except this time the man in the snapshot looked a lot like John Travolta, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The seller, who was seeking $50,000 for the picture, wrote, "For those of you who don't know, John Travolta is a Scientologist and many Scientologists believe in a type of reincarnation. Of course Time travel [sic] can't be ruled out as well."

At last check, the auction had been removed from eBay.  The "Cage" photo -- which had an asking price of $1 million -- previously suffered a similar fate.
