Joel Anthony Crothers (January 28, 1941 – November 6, 1985) was an American actor, originally from Cincinnati. Joel was the son of a tv production supervisor, and Joel auditioned for a part on his father's show under an assumed name as a practical joke - he won the role and began a long and succesful career in television.

He joined the cast of Dark Shadows in 1966, making his first appearance in the second episode. He portrayed two characters on the show: Joe Haskell, and Lt. Nathan Forbes. He left the show in 1969 to appear in another soap, The Secret Storm.

His first Broadway role was in The Remarkable Mr. Pennypacker. He was one of the actors to play Paul Bratter in Barefoot in the Park. Crothers graduated from Harvard. He had roles on Santa Barbara, The Edge of Night, and Somerset.

Crothers was openly gay in his private life, but was publicly in the closet. However, he became engaged to actress Valeka Grey, and the two were planning to marry, when the 44-year-old actor died of AIDS complications. His ashes were scattered at Lake George in New York state.
