Trivia and Quotes

    • Roscoe (About playing a villain which is Roscoe's trademark): It's hard to write good characters with complexities. The good characters usually seem to be reacting to something and it's the bad characters that are making the story move and I like to be part of that. I've been semi-good on a couple of shows. I started off bad on one and I got to make everything happen, then I turned good and everything happened to me. I'd rather... I like being bad.

    • Roscoe (About his daughter Alberta): She's very funny, extremely compassionate, wise beyond her years. She's not just a little girl, she's already a real person. I'm always happy when I'm with her.

    • Roscoe (After being fired from ABC's soap opera All My Children in 1997): It was hard on me, hard on my family, hard on anybody who had anything to do with me. And I have paid dearly in just about every way you can imagine.

    • Roscoe (About leaving the cast of The Young and the Restless): It's been a hell of a ride. I'll miss so many great people throughout the studio, on every level of production. My thanks and best wishes to all.
