Alex Cord (May 3, 1933) is an American actor who is perhaps best known for portraying the role of Archangel on the television series Airwolf.

Born Alex Viespi in Floral Park, New York, Cord's first role of note was in the 1962 movie The Chapman Report directed by George Cukor. He briefly enjoyed a leading man status on the big and small screen during the 1960s and 1970s, and starred or co-starred in westerns and action films.

He is one of a handful of actors to appear on both the original and revival versions of Mission: Impossible. Cord is also known to science fiction enthusiasts for having portrayed Dylan Hunt in the failed 1973 TV pilot Genesis II which was created by Gene Roddenberry.

In 1977 he starred in the epic Western Grayeagle where he played the title character.

Alex Cord had two children, a daughter, Toni Aluisa, and a son, Damien Zachary Cord, who died in 1995 of a heroin overdose at the age of 26. Alex Cord had Toni with Mary Ann Hutchinson, and Damien by his ex-wife, actress Joanna Pettet. He is the godfather of Michael Vincent Flaherty, son of Vince Flaherty.
