Puck isn't the only name Mark sings under. A musician at heart, Mark sings and plays the guitar under the stage name "Jericho." He recently released his debut album, Smoke Signals, on which he provided all of the instrumental and vocal tracks, and he has plans to continue his recording career. Along with the guitar, he can also play the piano, bass, and drums — he could be a one-man band! (Let's hope his music career goes a little better than fellow actor Keanu Reeves'.) As an actor, Mark's appeared in the movies Children of the Corn IV and The Graveyard, and he was also in an episode of Walker: Texas Ranger. Yikes. Okay, so let's just say it's good he's on Glee now!
Random factoid: Mark loves Tex-Mex food, his dog Hank, basketball, weight-lifting, and Frisbee golf.
