Warren Stevens (born November 2, 1919) is an American stage, screen, and television actor.
Born in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, Stevens began his acting career after serving in the U.S. Army Air Force as a pilot during World War II. He trained at The Actor's Studio in New York, received notice on Broadway, and thereafter was offered a Hollywood contract at 20th Century Fox.

Stevens' most memorable movie role was probably the ill-fated "Doc" Ostrow in the classic science fiction film Forbidden Planet (1956). He also had a supporting role in The Barefoot Contessa (1954) with Humphrey Bogart.
