A recurring theme in some of his films is his character being teased for baldness in various forms. On one occasion, when he guested in the sitcom Home along da riles, his character was referred to by Kevin Cosme (played by the sitcom's lead actor Dolphy) as Mr. Ecleo, a reference to both his own and Ruben Ecleo's Bald Head.

Roco appeared in a minor role in 2010's "Dagim", a Cinema One Original film directed by Joaquin Pedro Valdes, about the strange goings-on in a remote mountain province.

He is well known to be most collaborative works with the late Lino Brocka as a “Brocka” regular and directors such as Ishmael Bernal, Chito Roño, Marilou Diaz Abaya, and Joel Lamangan in the late nineteenth century.
