Alan Hale Jr. (born Alan Hale MacKahan, March 8, 1921 – January 2, 1990) was an American film, stage, character and television actor and restaurateur. Hale Jr. was the son of major movie character actor Alan Hale Sr. Hale Jr.'s television career, which spanned four decades, was most noted for his co-starring role on the 1960s series Gilligan's Island. He also appeared on several talk and variety shows.

Appearing in over 200 films and television roles, Hale's long acting career began in films in 1941, appearing primarily in Westerns, playing opposite Kirk Douglas in The Big Trees (1952), Audie Murphy in Destry (1954), Ray Milland in A Man Alone (1955), Robert Wagner in The True Story of Jesse James (1957) and Hugh Marlowe in The Long Rope (1961). He also appeared in musical comedies, playing opposite Don DeFore in It Happened on Fifth Avenue (1947), James Cagney in The West Point Story (1950) and Judy Canova in Honeychile (1951). He achieved continuing success on the CBS sitcom Gilligan's Island (1964–1967), playing the secondary lead role of The Skipper. After its cancellation, the series would remain a popular staple in syndication. Hale reprised the role of The Skipper in three Gilligan's Island television films and two spin-off cartoon series.

Hale died on January 2, 1990, of thymus cancer at St. Vincent Medical Center in Los Angeles at age 68.
