The Hon. Michael Langhorne Astor (10 April 1916 — 28 February 1980) was a British Conservative Party politician and fourth child of Waldorf Astor, 2nd Viscount Astor, and Nancy Witcher Langhorne, both Members of Parliament.

Astor was educated at Eton College. He gained the rank of Captain, serving in the Royal Artillery (Territorial Army). He was elected as Conservative Member of Parliament for Surrey East in the 1945 General Election. He kept his seat in the 1950 election but did not stand in 1951.

He married three times. Annabel Jones, his stepdaughter from his second marriage, married his nephew, William Astor, 4th Viscount Astor.

He wrote Tribal Feeling, his memoirs, published in 1963, and Brand, a novel, published in 1968.

He was a friend of Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond series, and dined with him shortly before his death on 12 August 1964.
