He guest starred on Medium (2009) as Kyle "K.C." Covington for one episode. Prokop landed a role in the Brendan Fraser film Furry Vengeance (2010), playing Fraser's son and he played the role of Josh Rosen in the Disney Channel Original Movie Geek Charming (2011) based on author Robin Palmer's novel.
In 2012, he appeared in an episode of Modern Family.
Prokop has not appeared in a new role, on film nor television (“pre-production” works continue to be on hold), since a multi-year pattern of behavior against his longtime girlfriend came to light in 2014. (see next section)
Prokop dated his Geek Charming co-star Sarah Hyland for several years until August 2014. In August 2014, Hyland obtained a temporary restraining order against Prokop for allegedly physically and verbally abusing her for the last four years of their relationship. In October 2014, the restraining order became permanent.
