He was very friendly on set and loved Lela Cortines known on the show as "Ellie Winston".His production company, Dos Dudes Pictures, produced its first feature film in 2014, Bad Hurt, which Rossi also stars in alongside Karen Allen (Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark) and Michael Harney (Orange Is the New Black, True Detective).
Throughout his acting career, Rossi has showcased his versatility starring in a multitude of hit television shows such as Law and Order: SVU, Hawaii Five-O, Las Vegas, The Unit, Jericho, Bones, Without a Trace, Veronica Mars, NYPD Blue, CSI:Miami, and Lie to Me. He has had recurring roles on Heist, American Dreams, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Rossi formed the New York-based production company Dos Dudes Pictures, which wrapped production on its first feature film, Bad Hurt, in 2014. Bad Hurt is currently being positioned for 2015 film festivals. Other television and film projects are currently in development.
In addition to acting and developing other projects, Rossi gets involved with the men and women of the military, with fellow Sons of Anarchy co-stars Kim Coates, Dayton Callie and Ron Perlman. Since Rossi is an Ambassador to the Boot Campaign, he directly works with multiple organizations that help raise money for wounded soldiers and those returning with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Throughout the off-season, Rossi travels to different bases to visit US military men and women on a regular basis. He has also helped in organizing the yearly Boot Ride event benefiting the Boot Campaign, giving fans a chance to spend a day riding with the Sons of Anarchy cast while raising money for U.S. military veterans.
In addition to supporting numerous charities throughout the country and in his home base of New York, within days of Hurricane Sandy hitting Staten Island, Rossi, with other friends and family, founded Staten Strong, a program administered by the Boot Campaign.
