He is remembered as "Mad Dog," the "Animal House-esque" football player of "First & 10," the HBO series on which he co-starred from 1985-88, and as "Stump," the somewhat slow-witted aide-de-camp for Robert Blake in "Helltown" (NBC, 1985).

Longo has appeared in numerous TV movies, but had perhaps his best role in "Young at Heart" playing a Hoboken, NJ, ethnic Italian who finds his emotional voice (CBS, 1995). His work in feature films dates back to the rather listless "Pink Motel" (1982), but he had a good moment as a weight-lifting buddy of romantic lead Michael Schoeffling in "Sixteen Candles" (1984).

Longo was in the all-star cast of "Bloodhounds of Broadway" (1989), the re-creation of four Damon Runyon stories starring Madonna and Matt Dillon, among others. In 1994, Longo was the chest-thumping catcher, Triscuitt Messmer, in the remake of "Angels in the Outfield," and was "Little Mike" opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in "Eraser" (1996). Longo was cast in "Police Academy...The Series," which was set to begin syndication in 1997.
