Tim McIntire (July 19, 1944 – April 15, 1986) was an American character actor, probably most famous for his portrayal of disc jockey Alan Freed in the film American Hot Wax (1978). He portrayed country music singer George Jones in the 1981 television movie Stand By Your Man, which was based on the best-selling autobiography by country music singer Tammy Wynette. He also starred in The Sterile Cuckoo (1969), The Gumball Rally (1976), The Choirboys (1977), Brubaker (1980) and Sacred Ground (1983). He had a role in Shenandoah (1965) as one of James Stewart's sons. That same year, he guest starred in Christopher Jones's ABC western The Legend of Jesse James.

McIntire also composed music for the soundtracks of such films as Jeremiah Johnson (1972) and A Boy and His Dog (1975), for which he also provided the voice of the titular dog, played by Tiger. McIntire also did many voice-overs for TV and radio commercials in Los Angeles.

McIntire was the son of actors John McIntire (1907-1991) of the television western Wagon Train fame and Jeanette Nolan (1911-1998), who made more than three hundred television appearances, co-starred with Earl Holliman in Hotel de Paree, and was nominated for four Emmy Awards.

He long struggled with alcohol and drug problems, which (combined with his heavy build) contributed to his death at the age of forty-one of congestive heart failure in Los Angeles, California.
