Matti Pellonpää (born March 28, 1951 in Helsinki; died July 13, 1995 in Vaasa) was an award-winning Finnish actor and a musician. He rose to international fame with his roles in both Aki Kaurismäki's and Mika Kaurismäki's films; particularly being a regular in Aki's films, appearing in 18 of them. He started his career in 1962 as a radio actor at the Finnish state-owned broadcasting company YLE. He performed as an actor during the 70s in many amateur theatres, at the same time that he studied at the Finnish Theatre Academy, where he completed his studies in the year 1977. He was nominated Best Actor by European Film Academy for his role as Rodolfo in La Vie de Boheme and won the Felix at the European Film Awards in 1992. He also starred in Jim Jarmusch's 1991 film Night on Earth. His private life melded seamlessly with his acting work.

A natural bohemian, and a genuine everyman without ego, he frequently used his own life as a basis for his acting, eschewing wardrobe provided, acting in his own clothes. In 1996 Matti Pellonpää was one of the people commemorating 100 years of Finnish Cinema on a stamp. Pellonpää was known among his friends for his joke-quizzes which utilized the similarity between names of countries and Finnish words.
