John Ericson (sometimes Erickson), born John Meibes (September 25, 1926) in Düsseldorf, Germany, is an actor and film and television star.

He trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, played the lead role in "Stalag 17" by Donald Bevan and Edmund Trzcinski on Broadway (1951). He went on to make a number of films for MGM in quick succession in the 1950s. His first appearance was in "Teresa" (1951), directed by Fred Zinnemann, which also launched the film careers of Pier Angeli and Rod Steiger. He then went on to appear in a series of films which included "Rhapsody", "The Student Prince", "Green Fire" (all in 1954), and "Bad Day at Black Rock" (1955).

His career continued, mostly on television, for the next 30 years. He co-starred with Anne Francis in the detective series "Honey West" in 1965, and he occasionally appeared in films such as "Pretty Boy Floyd" (1960), "7 Faces of Dr. Lao" (1964) and "Bedknobs and Broomsticks" (1971).

He has been married twice and has two children from his first marriage to Milly Coury.
