Roddy McMillan (23 March 1923 - 9 July 1979) was a Scottish actor and playwright, possibly most famous for his comedy role as Para Handy for BBC Scotland television. He also played the lead role in Edward Boyd's private eye series, The View from Daniel Pike.

The Glasgow-born McMillan's earliest theatre work began in the mid-1940s with the Glasgow Unity Theatre. Later that decade, he began acting with the Glasgow Citizen's Company before moving on to Edinburgh's Gateway Theatre in the mid-1950s.

He also performed in his own play, The Bevellers, which achieved success in performance at the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow during 1973 and then as a televised Play For Today for BBC. McMillan also played Detective Inspector "Choc" Minty in the late 1970s private eye series, Hazell, starring Nicholas Ball.
