Roscoe's favorite villain is Hannibal Lector. His favorite horror movie is Alien. His favorite candy bar is Snicker.
In December 1997, Roscoe decided to break his contract on All My Children by not appearing on the set and he took both viewers and the network by surprise. Later, Roscoe issued an apology to the network. Many believed he wouldn't be able to find another job but eventually his real return to daytime came when he reprised his role on One Life to Live as Mitch Laurence.
Roscoe's eyes are green.
In 1991, Roscoe received a Soap Opera Digest nomination for his performance in NBC's soap opera Santa Barbara.

Roscoe was married to his Ryan's Hope co-star Randall Edwards for 9 years (1982-1990). In 1994, Roscoe found love on set again, when he and his Santa Barbara co-star Roberta Weiss got married. In 2000, the couple got divorced.
Roscoe's height is 5' 9" (1.75 m).
Roscoe is the only male actor that has appeared in 11 different soap operas.
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.
