James Seay (9 September 1914 in Pasadena, California - 10 October 1992 in Capistrano Beach, California) was an American character actor who often played minor supporting roles as government officials.

Although it was a minor part not credited on-screen, his role in the film Miracle on 34th Street is one of his most visible, due to the film being a staple of Christmastime repeats on television.

Among his many credits, Seay appeared in minor roles in a couple of episodes of Adventures of Superman TV series: The Mind Machine (as a senator) and Jungle Devil (as an airplane pilot).

In the syndicated 1954-1955 television series Stories of the Century, starring and narrated by Jim Davis, Seay portrayed the Wyoming storekeeper James "Jim" Averill, companion of Cattle Kate Watson, both of whom were hanged in a dispute with cattlemen at the start of the Johnson County Range War.
