Mr. MacDonald is the character name of two African-American brothers who appear in later installments of the Planet of the Apes movie series, as companions of Caesar. While their first names are never given in the Apes movies, they are called Malcolm and Bruce in comics adaptations. Both men are of similar character. The first appears in the fourth Apes movie, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, played by actor Hari Rhodes, while the second appears in the fifth and final one, Battle for the Planet of the Apes, played by Austin Stoker.

With both MacDonalds playing virtually the same role toward Caesar, how one came to be exchanged for the other is never explained onscreen. (Rhodes was unable to repeat his role due to a prior commitment, which explains the change in actors.)
