Jonah Meyerson (born September 20, 1991) is an American actor. He has worked with actors such as Gene Hackman, Pierce Brosnan, Robin Williams, Ben Stiller, Dermot Mulroney, Alison Pill, and Aidan Quinn. He was born in New York City, where he currently lives. He is a graduate of Stuyvesant High School, and is now attending the University of Pennsylvania as a member of the class of 2013. He is assistant head writer for and a cast member of Penn's Mask and Wig Club, the nation's oldest collegiate all-male musical comedy troupe. Meyerson also performs with Penn's improv comedy troupe, Without a Net.

Meyerson made his acting debut in Wes Anderson's 2001 award-winning film The Royal Tenenbaums. He played Uzi, the red-suited older son of Chas, played by Ben Stiller, and the grandson of characters played by Gene Hackman and Anjelica Huston. Meyerson was nominated for a Young Artists' award for his work on that film. He also starred in Griffin and Phoenix, a new movie shown on the Lifetime channel and released on DVD. His work on that film earned him his second Young Artist Award nomination. In 2005, he was in the movies Little Manhattan and The Matador, and in 2004, David Duchovny's House of D. Playing computer genius Yoda who helps Alison Pill's character in Book of Daniel (2006), Jonah was set to appear in eight episodes, but only one of his episodes aired before the series was cancelled. His work on that series is available on the show's DVD.

He is represented by Abrams Artists Agency and Kipperman Management, both in New York City.
