Margolin is best known for his role on the television show The Rockford Files, playing Evelyn "Angel" Martin, the shifty friend and former cellmate of Jim Rockford (James Garner).

Margolin was earlier paired with James Garner in a 1971-72 TV Western series entitled Nichols, where he played a character somewhat similar to the Angel character he played in The Rockford Files. That show only lasted for one season. Margolin appeared in two episodes of the television series M*A*S*H ("Bananas, Cracker and Nuts", "Operation Noselift"), The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Rhoda, an episode of Land of the Giants ("The Mechanical Man"), Twelve O'Clock High ("Mutiny at Ten Thousand Feet"), The Monkees ("Monkees Watch Their Feet"), Love, American Style, The Fall Guy and Magnum, P.I. His brother, Arnold Margolin was the executive producer of the Love, American Style series. In May 2009, Margolin appeared on an episode of 30 Rock, opposite Alan Alda;[3] it was the first time the two actors appeared together since M*A*S*H in 1974. Margolin appears in the 2009 CTV/CBS police drama series The Bridge.[4][5]
