While we loved Glee's latest episode featuring duets, there was one problem with Tuesday's episode -- no Puck! Mark Salling's character, Noah Puckerman, was sent off to juvenile hall with no indication of when he'll return, and sources say that the actor's real life band may have had something to do with Puck's sudden disappearance.
“Mark has been really focused on his own music and it’s actually gotten in the way of his Glee stuff,” an insider told Hollywood Life.
Salling's band has just released their second album, Pipe Dreams, and though a source says the actor's band "means the world to him and he thinks that’s more important than the show at this point," others disagree.
"Mark would never prioritize anything over the show, he respects the executives and his cast too much to do that," another Glee insider told E! News. "People forget that he's been doing music for almost a decade before Glee. He just has a target on his back because he's the first of the cast to do a solo album."
What we do know for sure is that we want our Mohawked-man back on the screen pronto -- and both sources promise that we'll still be seeing plenty of Puck this season.
"Mark is gone for another episode, but he’s coming back for episode six," said a behind-the-scenes spy. "He’s featured a ton in that episode -- it’s basically all about him."
"He's still a series regular," the E! source concurred. "Mark will be back soon, Mohawk in full force, with a major bad boy comeback."
