James Mason (født 15. mai 1909 i Huddersfield i West Yorkshire i Storbritannia, død 27. juli 1984 i Lausanne i Sveits) var en britisk skuespiller.

Han startet sin karriere i 1930-årene i såkalte quota quickies i Storbritannia. Fra midten av 1940-tallet var Mason en av de ledende stjernene innen britisk film. Han spilte i mange eventyr- og krigsfilmer. Mason hadde to særskilte kjennetegn – sine vemodige øyne og sin karakteristiske stemme.

Han fikk tre Oscarsnominasjoner i løpet av karrieren, den første for A Star is Born. Man han vant aldri.
