José Bódalo Zúffoli (March 24, 1916 – July 24, 1985) was an Argentine born Spanish film actor.


Bódalo was born in Córdoba, Argentina, the son of Rome-born actress Eugenia Zúffoli and actor and singer José Bódalo, Sr. He moved to Spain, and he made over 120 film and TV appearances between 1930 and his death in 1985.

From the mid to late 1960s he prolifically appeared in Spaghetti Western films which were often Spanish and Italian co produced. He played the role of General Hugo Rodriguez in the 1966 film Django opposite Franco Nero; and also performed in Begin the Beguine, the film that won the 1982 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

He appeared in many comedy or drama films in Spain but also appeared in many television series particularly after 1970 such as Novela from 1969–1977 and Estudio 1 in the early 1980s.
