Actor. In films since 1965, American actor Alex Rocco specialized in tough-guy roles, sometimes leavening his hard-bitten portrayals with a dash of roguish humor. Rocco’s film assignments included such parts as gangster Legs Diamond in St. Valentine’s Day Massacre (1967) and Moe Greene in The Godfather (1974). He has been a regular or semi-regular on a number of television shows, beginning with 1975’s Three for the Road, in which he starred as freelance photographer (and full-time family man) Pete Karras. Alex Rocco has since been seen in such TVers as The Facts of Life as Mr. Polaznek, Sibs as Howie Roscio, The Famous Teddy Z as Al Floss, and The George Carlin Show as Harry Rossetti. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide. Alex has provided the voiceover for Rocco the Shark in Sea Save Foundation’s video production, “Rocco, the Cocos Island Whitetip Shark.”
