Lex Medlin (born March 30, 1969) is an American actor. He has appeared in a wide variety of television commercials and sitcoms. A star of the 2006 Fox TV sitcom Happy Hour, he is noted for his droll facial expressions and anything-for-a-laugh physicality.

He attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Pasadena, California, USA (1990–1991).

He was a main cast member of the short-lived Fox sitcom Happy Hour in 2006.
