Carmen Filpi (March 22, 1923 - May 9, 2003) was an American actor who starred in films and on television. He is well known for playing a homeless man in a lot of films.

His first feature film was in the 1969 film Wild Gypsies, he also starred in The Ice Pirates (1984), Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985), Life Stinks (1991), and The Wedding Singer (1998). Carmen also acted in the 2000 made-for-TV film Goodbye Casanova with Yasmine Bleeth. Carmen's final film was in 2002 in the film Eight Crazy Nights.

Horror film fans remember him from the 1988 hit horror film Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers as the Reverend Jackson P. Sayer. He portrayed a man passionate of his convictions and as a good Samaritan. Because Dr. Sam Loomis' transportation was destroyed while en route to Haddonfield, the reverend picked up the psychiatrist who was trying to hitchhike alongside a rural highway. The good reverend referred to his newfound passenger as a "fellow pilgrim." He paralleled a message to Loomis that "you can't kill damnation, mister. It don't die like a man dies." Loomis understood the reverend's insight privately reassuring himself that his patient Michael Myers seemed to be a relentless form of this damnation.

Carmen made many guest appearances in many TV shows. Some of those appearances range from Baretta, Barney Miller, Quantum Leap, Married... with Children, Growing Pains, and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.
