Glee Pucks Dad
"Glee" casts Puck's dad.

Though we've met many of those responsible for raising most of the core group of "Glee" students, the rebellious Noah Puckerman -- better known as "Puck" -- has been parent-less for all viewers now ... until now.

"Melrose Place" actor Thomas Calabro is headed to the Fox dramedy to play dad to the mohawk-sporting baby daddy himself, Puck (Mark Salling). Calabro is set to appear in an April episode of "Glee," TVLine exclusively revealed.

No further details have been released, but "Glee" has certainly taken it's parent-glee club member storylines seriously: Mike Chang's argument with his father in "Asian F," the coming out struggles between Kurt and Burt Hummel and of course, Rachel Berry's adopted mom Shelby (Idina Menzel) and her recently revealed dads (Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes).
