I will always remember him as MOE GREEN in the Godfather.

I vaguely remember a show called The Famous Teddy Z. Alex Rocco played a talent agent. I believe Jon Cryer was the star of the show. The show lasted maybe one season.

Smiley Sad  He was a great character actor.

 

I've been watching 'Facts of Life' a lot lately and also think of him as Jo's father.

good memory......i checked......first season.


Ha!  Not a good memory.  But I watch the GGs almost every night.  (My poor husband, I know!)


And a few seasons later the character returned saying he was getting a divorce, this time he was played by the late Jerry Orbach, another reat talent.

Rocco also played opposite Joan Rivers in an episode of Love Boat, he was a widower, and she was a recent breast cancer survivor, they fell in love on the ship, one of the best LB episodes ever.
