Rocco Reed is as hot as a summer day in his native Carolinas! Born in Charlotte, North Carolina, he grew up in Columbia, South Carolina and played basketball for the University of South Carolina on a partial scholarship. Working as a full-time print and runway model took Rocco all over the world. He lived in Milan, Italy, for two summers and traveled as far as Zimbabwe and Australia. He has appeared in catalogs for Abercrombie & Fitch and Gap, and in print campaigns and runway shows for designers such as Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein and Prada. As a teenager, Reed was a contract model for Structure, which is now the Express men's clothing line. "I've worked for eight of the 12 top designers," Rocco says. "It was a lot of fun and good times."
Beginning in 2005, Rocco's life took a turn for the X-rated. He originally moved to Los Angeles to continue his modeling career and pursue mainstream acting, but he took an opportunity to shoot for Playgirl. "When I did do that, it didn't ruin my [mainstream] career, but it started to limit it. My agent had a big problem with it. We argued about it and I ended up doing it... I made a living modeling, and I did some theatre and some improv — I did anything I could get my hands on," Rocco says. "I really wanted to be an actor. In college I studied psychology and theatre. I have a degree in psychology."
Fans honored Rocco with the title of Performer of the Year (Male) at TLARaw.com's annual awards in April 2011. The following January, Rocco won an XBIZ Award for Male Performer of the Year.
In June 2012, the porn world was shocked when Rocco announced that he had signed a six-month exclusive contract with gay adult website Men.com, making him the first highly successful male performer to cross over to gay porn in a long time. Rocco's contract is for four scenes per month. He shot his first scene with popular gay star Tommy Defendi.
