Glee Casts Melrose Alum As Puck’s Dad

Actor Thomas Calabro attends the 2009 The CW Network UpFront at Madison Square Garden on May 21, 2009 in New York, New York.

Between Glee's histrionics, bed-hopping, lanky blonde villains, dumb jock heroes, and under-developed black female characters, it already seemed a little like Melrose Place. (Original Melrose, at least.) Now, even more so: Thomas Calabro — Michael Mancini! — has been cast as Puck's dad. According to TV Line, Calabro will appear in an episode in April. Glee's had a few parent-centric stories this season, with Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes as Rachel's dads, and Gloria Estefan set to play Santana's mom in an upcoming episode. We would have guessed Heather Locklear would be the Melrose-Glee nexus, but live and learn.
