James Todd Spader (born February 7, 1960 in Boston, Massachusetts) is an American actor best known for his eccentric, smarmy, sexually deviant yuppie roles in movies such as sex, lies, and videotape and Secretary.

Spader attended The Pike School, where his mother taught art and Brooks School in North Andover, Massachusetts, and where his father, Todd, also taught. The family lived on campus, and Spader is one of the school's most famous students. Afterwards he attended Phillips Academy, but he dropped out in the eleventh grade to pursue acting in New York City.

He met his wife, Victoria, while working in a yoga studio soon after he moved to New York in the early 1980s. She often traveled with him, either on location or just on the road. They married in 1987 and had two sons, Sebastian and Elijah. They divorced in 2004.

Spader got his start in Pretty in Pink.
