Lisa S. Blount (born July 1, 1957) is an American film and television actress and Oscar-winning producer.

Born in Fayetteville, Arkansas and raised in Jacksonville, Arkansas, Blount started working in show business with her debut in Sam's Song (1969). After graduating from Jacksonville High School in 1975, she landed several small television roles, but she is most likely remembered for her debut film role as Lynette Pomeroy, the cynical, insecure best friend to Paula Pokrifki, played by Debra Winger, in An Officer and a Gentleman. Another memorable role was that of Jim Profit's outrageous stepmother Bobbi Stakowski in the short-lived but critically-acclaimed Fox TV series Profit.

She also starred in Prince of Darkness as the love interest to Jameson Parker who would play a more important role in the story as it went along. She also appeared during season two (1986) of Moonlighting in the episode 'Sleep Talkin' Guy' as the beautiful prostitute, Toby, who helped David Addison crack cases.

She later became a producer and, along with her husband Ray McKinnon, won the Academy Award for best live action short film for the 2001 film, "The Accountant".

Blount produced and acted in the film Chrystal, starring Billy Bob Thornton.
