Lon McCallister (born Herbert Alonzo McCallister Jr.) (April 17, 1923 - June 11, 2005) was an American actor.

Born in Los Angeles, he began appearing in movies at the age of 13. The young actor had leads in a number of films; he usually played boyish young men from the country. Growing only to 5'6" he found it difficult to find roles as an adult. He appeared with Edward G. Robinson in 1947's The Red House and in the same year with Shirley Temple in The Story of Seabiscuit.

In 1953, at the age of 30, he retired from acting. Later in life he became a successful real estate manager.

He was actor William Eythe's love interest for many years, until Eythe's death in 1957.

Lon McCallister died from congestive heart failure at the age of 82.
