      Handsome, lanky comic character player who first gained notoriety for saying the f-word on the air while employed by "Saturday Night Live." Rocket was subsequently fired from the long-running sketch series, and went on to appear in a number of features, TV-movies, specials and several series--he was especially effective as Richard Addison, the brother of Bruce Willis's p.i. on the series "Moonlighting," in a recurring roles on the inventive series "Max Headroom," the inspirational "Touched By an Angel" and as a regular on the legal drama "The Home Court" (1995-1996) and the John Goodman sitcom "Normal, Ohio" (2000). Usually cast as slimy white-collar criminals or bumbling ne'er-do-wells, Rocket has appeared in the features "Earth Girls Are Easy" (1989), as a sleazy doctor who wants to perform tests on friendly aliens, "Dances With Wolves" (1990), as a kindly Calvary officer, "Short Cuts" (1993), as another boyfriend of Frances McDormand, and the comedy blockbuster "Dumb and Dumber" (1994), as the idiotic villain. After a lengthy career that included film, television, cartoons and even video games, Rocket was found dead of an apparent suicide at age 56 near his Canterbury, Connecticut home on Oct. 7, 2005.
