Roland Toutain (October 18, 1905 - October 16, 1977) was a French actor, songwriter and stuntman. He appeared in 55 films between 1924 and 1957, both in leading and supporting roles.

Toutain is known for playing the aviator André Jurieux in Jean Renoir's film The Rules of the Game (La Règle du jeu). The role fitted to him: Toutian was also an avid hobby aviator, as well as an acrobat. He first gained fame as an actor in the adventure film The Mystery of the Yellow Room and its sequel The Perfume of the Lady in Black. Toutain also appeared in Fritz Lang's Liliom (1934). His film career slowed down in the late 1940s and he made his final movie in 1956. He was good friends with fellow actor Jean Marais, who organized his funeral.
