When we found out Puck went to Juvie and wasn’t going to be in Episode 2.4, “Duets” — we started getting nervous. To make matters worse? He is noticeably absent from the Rocky Horror episode promos as well. So what gives?

In a recent exclusive interview (more on that soon!) with Mark Salling, we asked what role he’ll be playing in the Rocky Horror-themed ep of Glee set to air October 26. He says he “can’t really say” (boo!), which to us means that he most likely is in the episode. But who knows. What we do know for certain is this: John Stamos will fill in for the role of Eddie (Meat Loaf in the original), which was initially going to be played by Puck. For an as yet unknown reason, Puck drops out of the production.

HollywoodLife.com is now indicating that a certain “Glee insider” has come forth to dish on Mark’s absence from the show. According to this source, “Mark has been really focused on his own music and it’s actually gotten in the way of his Glee stuff.” If the rumors are true, executives took him off the show for a few episodes to “lay down the law.”

But have no fear, Gleeks! We’re pretty sure Mark Salling isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Another Glee insider stated: “Mark is gone for another episode, but he’s coming back for episode six. He’s featured a ton in that episode — it’s basically all about him.”

Okay, let’s all breathe a collective sigh of relief. He just has an album to promote, you know?
