James Craig (February 4, 1912 - June 28, 1985) was an American actor.

After graduating from the Rice Institute, Craig began appearing in films in 1937, most often in B-movies and serials. In 1939, he appeared in the Three Stooges film Oily to Bed, Oily to Rise.

Craig received critical praise (and a step up to A movies) when he played a New Hampshire farmer who sells his soul in All That Money Can Buy, also titled The Devil and Daniel Webster (1941). He also appeared in the films Kitty Foyle (1940), The Human Comedy (1943), Lost Angel (1943), and Kismet (1944). In 1944, he co-starred with William Powell and Hedy Lamarr in The Heavenly Body.

After retiring from films, Craig became a successful real estate agent. He died of lung cancer in 1985.
