James Bradbury Jr (5 October 1894 21 January 1936) was an American character actor in supporting roles in films of the 1920s and 1930s.

The son of veteran character actor James Bradbury (1857 1940), New York born Bradbury, Jr. began his career on stage as a child in Madame Butterfly. Both Bradburys arrived in Hollywood around 1920, and Junior played Richard Barthelmess' rival in Classmates (1921) and The Dropkick (1927). Other roles followed, including numerous budget westerns such as The Glorious Trail (1928), Cheyenne (1929), and The Cisco Kid (1931). Later film roles tended to get smaller and uncredited, such as his bit in The Marx Brothers's Monkey Business (1931), although one of his last parts, "third vampire" opposite Bela Lugosi in Tod Browning's Mark of the Vampire (1935), showcased his dinstinctive boney features to good effect. By this time, however, even small parts were eluding him and he took his own life in 1936, aged 41.
