Cory Monteith, who plays Finn Hudson on "Glee," might appear naive and innocent on the show, but the actor had a rocky start and said in a recent interview that he struggled with a "serious" drug problem.
"I'm not Finn Hudson," Monteith told Parade magazine. "Finn started off as the stereotypical dumb jock but as the show has gone on, Finn's not dumb anymore, really, he's just a little na´ve. The opposite of me."
