John Soursby Glover Jr. (born August 7, 1944) is an American actor, perhaps best known for a range of villainous roles in films and television, including Lionel Luthor on the Superman-inspired television series Smallville.

Glover was born in Kingston, New York, the son of Cade (née Mullins) and John Soursby Glover Sr., a television salesman and was raised in Salisbury, Maryland. Glover attended Wicomico High School and acted at Towson University. Glover is also actively involved with the Alzheimer's Association. His inspiration for joining this cause was his own father's experience with Alzheimer's Disease.

One of his early film performances was a small but pivotal role as a U.S. diplomat in White Nights. Other notable roles include Alan Raimy in 52 Pick-Up, Bryce Cummings in Scrooged, Daniel Clamp in Gremlins 2: The New Batch, a mobster in Payback, an advertising spokesman in Robocop 2, Derek Mills in Night of the Running Man, The Riddler in Batman: The Animated Series, Doctor Jason Woodrue in Batman & Robin, Verad in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Invasive Procedures", The Devil in the series Brimstone. He also had a recurring role in The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd as "Cousin Jerry, from Bal'mer", a relative whom no-one actually seemed to know. He appeared in one episode of Miami Vice. He also appeared in two episodes of Murder, She Wrote one called One White Rose for Death, in which he played East German Franz Mueller who wished to defect to the U.S. but whose sister was a celebrated concert violinist and they both got caught up in a case of murder at the British Embassy. The other was called "When Thieves Fall Out", playing Andrew Durbin, a man wrongly accused of stealing bonds.
