John Banner (28 January 1910 - 28 January 1973), born Johann Banner, was an American film and television actor, who was born and died in Vienna, Austria.

He is best known for his role as the World War II German Master Sergeant Hans Georg Schultz in the situation comedy Hogan's Heroes (1965 - 1971). A veteran of World War I, Schultz constantly encountered evidence that the inmates of his Stalag (prisoner-of-war camp) were planning mayhem, but realised he would be better off feigning ignorance. His constant catchphrase was "I know nothing! Nothing!" One episode of Hogan's Heroes was titled "At Last: Schultz Knows Something".
