Brad Dexter (born Veljko Soso; April 9, 1917 – December 12, 2002) was an American actor and film producer. He is known for tough-guy and western roles including the 1960 film The Magnificent Seven (1960) and producing several films for Sidney J. Furie such as Lady Sings the Blues.

Known as a nice guy off screen, Dexter's tough-guy roles contrasted with his easy going and friendly personality.
