Rafael Aranda Roco, Jr. (born November 20, 1953) is an award-winining Filipino actor whose work ranges from films to television. He is famous for his critically acclaimed role as Julio Madiaga in Maynila: Sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag. Though he acts in his country's films, he also had an important role in the 1982 Australian-U.S. film The Year of Living Dangerously. He also portrayed bald villain roles in Philippine action movies as well as various supporting roles. Bem is currently starred in Sine Novela: Tinik Sa Dibdib.

He has his twin sons named Felix and Dominic.

A recurring theme in some of his films are his characters are being teased on-screen for his baldness in various forms. On one occasion, when he guested in the sitcom Home along da riles as a villain, 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 appears 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.
