Pierre-Richard Maurice Charles Léopold Defays (born August 16, 1934 in Valenciennes), better known as Pierre Richard, is a French actor, film director and screenwriter.

One of the most famous French film comedians of the second half of the 20th century, he is best known for his clumsy and often Unluckily Lucky daydreamer roles in comedy films of The '70s and The '80s, such as The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe and the films written and/or directed by Francis Veber, including some Buddy Pictures with Gérard Depardieu. As he aged, he shifted to play Cool Old Guys.

A number of the comedies he played in have had American remakes.
