Luis van Rooten, (November 29, 1906 - June 17, 1973) was an American film actor. He was christened Luis d'Antin van Rooten.

Van Rooten earned his BA at the University of Pennsylvania and worked as an architect before deciding to pursue film work in Hollywood during World War II. His facility with languages made van Rooten an in-demand military radio announcer during the war, and he conducted a variety of broadcasts in Italian, Spanish and French. This led into film work, often in roles requiring an accent or skill with dialects.
