J. Pat O'Malley (March 15, 1904 - February 27, 1985) was an English singer and actor of Irish extraction. He was born James Patrick O'Malley in Burnley, England.

O'Malley began his recording career in 1929 and was principal singer with Jack Hylton and his Orchestra from 1930 to 1933. Known at that time as Pat O'Malley, he recorded over 400 popular songs of the day.

O'Malley began a solo recording career in 1935 in parallel with his work with Hylton. At the end of 1935 Hylton and O'Malley went to the US to record with a band composed of American musicians, thus emulating Ray Noble and Al Bowlly. The venture was short-lived but O'Malley remained in the United States.

Now known as J. Pat O'Malley he had a long and varied acting career including the film Lassie Come Home in 1943, the Disney television serial Spin and Marty and a role in the television series Maude, as Hermione Baddeley's beau, from 1973 to 1975.

His voice can also be heard in Alice in Wonderland (1951) and 101 Dalmatians (1961).

J.Pat O'Malley died in San Juan Capistrano, California at the age of 80.
