Theodore Lorch (September 29, 1873 – November 12, 1947) was an American film actor. He appeared in 146 films between 1908 and 1947.

Lorch is notable for his commanding performances in several Three Stooges comedies. He was the suspicious Major "Bloodhound" Filbert in Uncivil Warriors, the snooty psychologist Professor Sedlitz in Half-Wits Holiday, and General Muster in Goofs and Saddles. He also excelled in performing tiny bit roles, such as the butler in If a Body Meets a Body and Micro-Phonies.

Lorch died on November 12, 1947. His final Stooge film, The Hot Scots, was released posthumously in 1948.
