Melanie Hutsell (born August 2, 1968) is an American comedic actress best known for her tenure on Saturday Night Live.

Hutsell was born in Maryville, Tennessee. She began her career starring in a Chicago stage production, The Real Live Brady Bunch in 1990. The theatre shows consisted of eight actual episodes of the cult classic TV show The Brady Bunch, with Hutsell cast as Jan Brady. The company toured to New York City, where Hutsell was chosen for the seventeenth season of SNL.

Hutsell was a featured player from 1991 1993, and a regular cast member in the 1993 1994 season. She would eventually reprise her Jan Brady portrayal on a series of Weekend Update appearances, making it Hutsell's most recognizable recurring character. Hutsell also played a sorority pledge named Di in a series of sketches about the sorority Delta Delta Delta, along with Siobhan Fallon and Beth Cahill. Her most notable impressions were of Tonya Harding and Tori Spelling, an actress whom she resembled very closely.

After her film Can't Stop Dancing (1999), Hutsell quit show business to raise her daughter, Carly Rose.

Hutsell is currently returning from retirement. She appeared in He's Such a Girl, a 2008 comedy also starring Ed Begley, Jr.

In May 2009 she appeared as a guest on "Best Dishes" with Paula Deen on the Food Network. She announced that she is making a comeback, focusing on writing.
