Miller Farr Jr. (born April 8, 1943 in Beaumont, Texas) was an American football cornerback who played for ten seasons in the AFL and NFL.

He attended Wichita State University, lettering in football and track. In his senior year, he led the nation in kickoff and punt returns. He is a member of a family of athletes and artists, including a brother and cousins, football players Mel Farr, Lem Barney, and Jerry LeVias, and cousin, singer Marvin Gaye.

Miller Farr was a first round draft choice by the AFL's Denver Broncos in 1964, then went to the San Diego Chargers for 1965 and 1966. He played defensive back for the Houston Oilers from 1967 through 1969. During the 1967 season, Farr was the AFL co-leader in interceptions with ten (t - Westmoreland, Janik). Despite a bout with hepatitis, he intercepted two passes for touchdowns in one game in 1968. He led the AFL in interception touchdowns that year and was selected All-AFL and All-Pro.

Following the AFL-NFL merger, Farr signed with the St. Louis Cardinals beginning in 1970 where he finished out his NFL career. In 1974 he played with the Florida Blazers of the World Football League.

A three time American Football League All-Star, Farr established an AFL record for the most touchdowns on pass interceptions in a game (2) and tied the AFL record for a season (3). Miller Farr was selected to the All-Time All-AFL second team.

Farr is part of a family full of professional football players. He is the older brother of former NFL player Mel Farr as well as the uncle of former players Mel Farr, Jr. and Mike Farr.
