Ivo Gregurević (born October 7, 1952 in Orašje, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Yugoslavia) is a Croatian actor. In more than quarter of century Gregurević usually played rural bullies and arrogant nouveau riche and became one of Croatia's best known and most dependable character actors.

Gregurević graduated from the Drama Academy in Zagreb and has worked in over 90 movies and television programs since the late 1970s; in particular, he acted in almost all of Croatian movies after gaining independence in 1991. He also had few starring roles, best known being in 1991 film Čaruga. Croatian film director Snježana Tribuson has stated that she had intentionally cast Gregurević in almost all of her movies.[1]

Besides movie roles, he made the successful appearances in popular Croatian TV-series, Velo misto, playing the Netijak, and Odmori se, zaslužio si.

He has won two Croatian Actors' Association Awards for Šokica (1998) and Duga mračna noć (2006). In 2005 he was ranked second in the Croatian-based film magazine Hollywood in the "Best Croatian Male Movie Stars of All Time" list.
