Ed Peck (March 26, 1917 – September 12, 1992) was an American actor.

Peck was born in New York, United States, and was active in television and in films from 1951 to 1983, specializing in playing either police officers or military officers.

One of his most notable parts on screen was among his last, in the television series Happy Days, in the recurring role as police officer Kirk from 1975 to 1983. When the series finished in 1983, he retired from acting. He also has played a police officer similar to Officer Kirk in at least one episode of the television series All in the Family.

Peck was a member of the cast of the summer 1972 television situation comedy The Super, portraying Officer Clark, a tenant in a New York City apartment building. He also guest-starred on dozens of television series including The Untouchables, Perry Mason, The Fugitive, Get Smart, Barney Miller, Star Trek (Tomorrow Is Yesterday, 1967), Benson, Cannon, and Bonanza, as well as films such as Heaven Can Wait, Bullitt, Cheech and Chong's Next Movie, and The Prisoner of Second Avenue. He played a rabbi in an episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show.

Peck died on September 12, 1992, in Los Angeles, California at the age of 75. His remains were donated to medical science.
