John Dehner (born John Dehner Forkum, also credited Dehner Forkum; November 23, 1915 – February 4, 1992) was an American stage, radio, film, and television actor. From the late 1930s to the late 1980s, he amassed a long list of performance credits, often in roles as sophisticated con men, shady authority figures, and other smooth-talking villains. His credits just in feature films, televised series, and in made-for-TV movies number almost 300 productions. Dehner worked extensively as well in radio during the latter half of that medium's "golden age", accumulating hundreds of additional credits as a voice actor on nationally broadcast series. His most notable starring role in those series was as Paladin on the radio version of the Western Have Gun – Will Travel, which aired for 106 episodes on CBS from 1958 to 1960. Earlier in his career, Dehner also worked briefly for Walt Disney Studios, serving as an assistant animator from 1940 to March 1941 at the company's facilities in Burbank, California.
