Henry Polic II (February 20, 1945 – August 11, 2013) was an American stage, screen, and voice actor, best known as Jerry Silver on Webster.
In the 1980s, Polic was often seen as a celebrity guest player on various game shows. His most frequent guest spots were on the various incarnations of Pyramid, as he appeared multiple times on The $25,000 Pyramid and the Dick Clark and John Davidson-hosted editions of The $100,000 Pyramid for producer Bob Stewart. Polic also did various other work for Stewart, hosting the game show Double Talk in 1986, a pilot for a revival of Stewart's Eye Guess called Eye Q in 1988, and sharing announcing duties with Johnny Gilbert and Dean Goss on the latter edition of The $100,000 Pyramid. His specialties included foreign and regional accents, ballroom dancing and baritone singing.
From the early 1990s until his death, Polic was perhaps best known as the original British-accented voice of the Scarecrow in Batman: The Animated Series. Originally he had a deep, gruff voice, but later made his voice a bit higher for the role. Polic also worked at Florida State University as a guest star in the School of Theatre's production of A Christmas Carol, playing Scrooge in 1996. In addition to his game show appearances, Polic himself hosted Double Talk (1986–87).
