Johan ("Jan") Mulder (born 4 May 1945 in Bellingwolde, Netherlands) is a former Dutch football striker who played for R.S.C. Anderlecht and AFC Ajax. He also played five matches for the Netherlands, scoring once. Mulder was topscorer of the 1966-67 season in the Belgian Jupiler League. His son Youri also grew up to become a football player, spending most of his career in the German Bundesliga at FC Schalke 04 until he retired in 2002.

After his football career had ended, Mulder became a well-known writer, columnist and television-personality in the Netherlands, making his debut analysing a match of the Dutch national football team broadcast by TV channel RTL4 in 1996. From that point onwards he would frequently guest star in the RTL4 shows by Frits Barend and Henk van Dorp, who presented both football-related programmes as well as talkshows concerning more political and social/public subjects. After having been a daily guest-star on the show 'Villa BvD', a football show during the 1998 World Cup in France (also hosted by Frits Barend and Henk van Dorp), Mulder made more and more TV appearances until finally becoming daily guest-star on the late-night talkshow 'Barend & Van Dorp' since March 1999, until the show stopped in April 2006.

The final season of 'Barend & Van Dorp' was shown on the channel Talpa, who had bought the programme from RTL4 during the summer of 2005. Jan Mulder also frequently appeared on another show that was broadcast by Talpa; 'Eredivisie - De Wedstrijden', which aires several times a week and shows highlights of the Dutch Football League (the Eredivisie).

Mulder has also written several works, ranging from ultra-short stories to novels. Most people will associate his name with 'CaMu', the partnership between Remco Campert and Jan Mulder that has been writing daily front-page columns for national newspaper De Volkskrant since 1995. These columns are traditionally bundled into books entitled 'CaMu Jaaroverzicht' at the end of each year.
