Zvonimir Rogoz (10 October 1887 – 6 February 1988) was a Croatian actor.

A native of Zagreb, Zvonimir Rogoz became famous in Czechoslovakia between the two world wars. He appeared in many Czechoslovak films of the 1930s, but the best known of them all was the 1933 erotic drama Ecstasy, featuring Hedy Lamarr, who shocked the public by appearing nude.

From 1950's onwards, Rogoz appeared in Croatian films, but the younger generations of Croatia remember him best for his private life: he fathered a child at the age of 96. This and other events became the subject of his autobiographical book Mojih prvih 100 godina (My First 100 Years).

He died in Zagreb a few months after his 100th birthday.
