Ernest Thurston Hall (May 10, 1882 – February 20, 1958) was an American film actor. At 22 in 1904 he was in the first stage production of Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch. He appeared in 250 films between 1915 and 1957 and is remembered for his portrayal, during the later stages of his career, of often pompous or blustering authority figures. Early in his silent career he supported Theda Bara in her vamp-costume dramas.

Hall's best-known television role was as Mr. Schuyler, the boss of Cosmo Topper (played by Leo G. Carroll), in the 1950s television series, Topper (1953–1956). Hall was married to Quenda Hackett (1897–1984).
