David Benjamin Moo (born December 3, 1970) is an American voice actor, bartender and bar owner. He worked on projects for 4Kids Entertainment, Central Park Media, NYAV Post and TAJ Productions. He is best known for voicing Sanji in the 4Kids dub of One Piece, as well as Xellos in The Slayers, and Faraji Ngala in several episodes of the 2003-2009 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series.

Career

Moo was previously an actor and theatre director before landing roles as a voice actor in the late 1990s, primarily voicing characters in Japanese anime as they were dubbed into English for local audiences. Some of Moo's performances, specifically his role as Sanji from One Piece, received online criticism from anime fans. Moo would later disclose in a 2014 interview that when he was voicing the American version of Sanji for the 4Kids version, that it had been the script directors' choice to give the character a Brooklyn accent, which contradicted many fan rumors of Moo having a head cold or being a drug addict.

Around the One Piece recordings, he was working as a bartender at the Quarter Bar in Brooklyn. He recorded for Sanji from 2004 up until the dub's cancellation. He has since retired from major voice acting and is now the owner of the Quarter Bar in Brooklyn. As a result, he was replaced by Michael Sinterniklaas for the seasons 4 & 5 of Slayers. He still does minor voice roles in some projects.
