His other television credits include the 1975 CBS drama, Three for the Road, the 1991-92 ABC sitcom, Sibs, and the 1994-95 Fox sitcom, The George Carlin Show. He also played Jo's father in eleven episodes of the NBC sitcom, The Facts of Life (1981-88).

Rocco's film credits include Russ Meyer's Motorpsycho (1965), The Godfather (1972) as mobster Moe Greene, Joan Rivers' Rabbit Test (1978), Voices (1979), Return to Horror High (1987), Lady in White (1988), Wired (1989), That Thing You Do! (1996) and The Wedding Planner (2001).
