Samuel Lloyd Haynes (September 19, 1934 January 1, 1987) was an African-American actor and television writer. Haynes was a member of the Bahá'í Faith.

Haynes served in the Marines from 1952 1964 and during the Korean War. He was a public-affairs officer for the Naval reserve with the rank of Commander.

Following his military career, Haynes studied acting at the Film Industries Workshop and Actors West in Los Angeles. Haynes appeared in a number of films and television series, such as Batman and the second Star Trek pilot episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before". Haynes was dropped from Star Trek because series Producer Gene Roddenberry preferred actress Nichelle Nichols over him. Haynes received the most recognition for his role as schoolteacher Pete Dixon in the ABC situation comedy series Room 222, with Michael Constantine and Karen Valentine. Haynes and Valentine were both nominated for an Emmy and Golden Globe Award for their roles.

He died from lung cancer on January 1, 1987.
