RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Veteran character actor of film and TV, known for his portrayals of edgy characters with gangland or police affiliations. Rocco, who made his debut as a thug getting WHAPPED!! by the caped crusaders on an episode of "Batman", is probably best remembered for his turn as Las Vegas mob boss Moe Green--the one who gets it in the eye during the harrowing and bravura christening sequence--in the gangster epic "The Godfather" (1972). With his set-back eyes and intense presence, Rocco is well suited for screen roles as street toughs and law men. In fact Rocco has called upon memories of Moe Green in several of his roles, notably as the corrupt Cardinal in the lightweight 1991 comedy "The Pope Must Die" (re-titled "The Pope Must Diet" in the US) and as low-level hood "Broadway" Harry Rosetti on the short-lived sitcom "The George Carlin Show" (Fox, 1994). Rocco continues to alternate his time between TV and film.
