Stockwell was also cast in episodes of The Roaring 20s, Quincy, M.E., Simon & Simon, Knight Rider, Tales of the Gold Monkey, The Eddie Capra Mysteries, Magnum, P.I., Murder, She Wrote, Columbo, Quantum Leap, Bonanza, Tombstone Territory, Combat!, The Richard Boone Show, Gunsmoke, and Return to Peyton Place, He had important roles in several major motion pictures including The War Lord, The Plainsman, Beau Geste, Tobruk, The Monitors, It's Alive and Santa Sangre.

Stockwell suffered from diabetes in later years and died of its complications. He was married and divorced three times and was survived by his three children, Kerry, Douglas, and Victoria; his grandchildren (through Douglas), Nicholas Paul, Lauren Elizabeth, Hannah, and Abigail "Bea" (through Kerry); his brother Dean; and his nephew and niece, Austin and Sophia.
