George Guy Oliver (September 25, 1878 – September 1, 1932) was an American actor. He appeared in at least 189 silent film era motion pictures and 32 talkies in character roles between 1911 and 1931. His obituary gives him credit for at least 600. He directed three films in 1915.

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Oliver began his career as a cornetist at six-years-old in Lamar, Missouri. After traveling with his family in a musical troupe, he decided to become an actor at age 21.

In 1908 he joined Lubin Studios in Philadelphia, earning $3.00 a day. After appearing with Eclair, Kinemacolor and the Selig Polyscope Company, Oliver went to California. He joined the company headed by Jesse L. Lasky in 1916, working for Lasky under a verbal contract.

Oliver appeared in at least 18 films starring Wallace Reid, and in those made by many other stars on the Paramount roster.

He was forced to retire and rest in 1931 because of his health, but the studio kept him on the payroll.

Guy Oliver died at age 53 from cancer at Hollywood Hospital in Hollywood, California.
