Glee Season 4: Puck’s Brother Is Damaged — and a Total “Heartbreaker”
Ladies of McKinley High School, consider yourselves warned. Puck’s (Mark Salling) younger half brother is coming to Glee Season 4, and he’s going to be a heartbreaker.
Jacob Artist (Jake Puckerman) recently sat down with E! News to give the inside scoop on what to expect about his new character, and it sounds like we’re in for a bit of trouble.

Survey says... don’t count on it.
“I think this is the extent of it,” Jake says, referring to his super-short locks. “I used to have really long hair. Well, not really long, but longer — but this is the shortest I’ve ever had. But they cut it and I love it. It’s very Puck.”
“Very Puck?” Hmm. “[It’s very] Jake Puckerman, we’ll say that. Not quite Noah Puckerman mohawk status, but...”
