At the advice of his first manager, he moved to Los Angeles, California, to further his career. While in Los Angeles, Pallo began teaching acting classes at Scott Sedita Acting Studios. Later, he began booking roles and landed his first one as a guest star on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. He also appeared in feature films, starring on Minority Report, War of the Worlds, Lions for Lambs, Insidious: Chapter 2, and The List. In addition, he had recurring appearances on Resurrection Blvd., The Shield, The Unit, 24, and Sons of Anarchy.
