SMALL-SCREEN SUCCESS

Monteith makes his onscreen debut in a 2004 episode of Stargate: Atlantis, which jumpstarts a string of guest-star gigs on shows such as Smallville, Kyle XY (pictured) and Fear Itself. "I call myself a working-class actor," he recalled to The Toronto Star. "You know, you go from one-line gig to the next one-line gig, to a couple of episodes on this show, a couple episodes on that show, to a small part in a movie ... I was making a good living, but it really wasn't a life."
