Vic Perrin (April 26, 1916 – July 4, 1989) was an American actor and voice artist. He is best remembered as the "Control Voice" in the original version of the TV series "The Outer Limits" (1963 – 1965).

During the 1940s and 1950s, Perrin was a regular performer on old-time radio, appearing in many shows. He was a regular guest star on the radio version of Gunsmoke and wrote at least one script for that show.

One of his first TV roles was in a 1953 episode of "Adventures of Superman" entitled "The Golden Vulture", where he played a hapless sailor on board a freighter run by a self-styled pirate.

Vic Perrin played minor character roles on numerous TV series in the '50s and '60s including "Dragnet", "Gunsmoke", "Have Gun — Will Travel", "The Untouchables", and "". He was a regular voice-over in the original "Jonny Quest" cartoon series (as the voice of Dr. Zin and other villains). He voiced the villain, The Gimmick, in an episode of "Blue Falcon".

He played a voyeuristic serial killer in the 1966 made-for-TV movie "Dragnet", which served as a pilot episode for the color version of the TV series.

Perrin also had voice-over and character roles in four classic "Star Trek" episodes. During the first season, he was the voice of the real Balok in "The Corbomite Maneuver", and he voiced the Metron in "Arena", where Kirk fought the Gorn. He was also the head man on a planet of pacifists who would not trade dilithium crystals, in "Mirror, Mirror", and the voice of Nomad in "The Changeling", both second season episodes. To the legions of fans of the "Superfriends" series, Perrin's voice is well known as the voice of villain, "Sinestro", an arch-nemesis of "Green Lantern".

Perrin was believed to be the original narrator of Walt Disney World's Spaceship Earth at Epcot when it originally opened in 1982, but this is not known for sure.

He continued to do voice-overs and to play character roles until a few years before his death.
