Nozomu Sasaki (佐々木 望 Sasaki Nozomu, born January 25, 1967) is a Japanese voice actor and singer from Hiroshima, Japan. Best known for voicing younger characters, he is best known for voicing Tetsuo Shima in Akira, Yusuke Urameshi in Yu Yu Hakusho, Mello in Death Note and Hayate Gekko in Naruto and Naruto Shippūden, among many other roles.

He is sometimes mistaken for fellow voice actress Nozomi Sasaki, since in the katagana alphabet both names are written the same (佐々木 望) and the kanji 望 is used to pronounce both names although they end in different vowels. Sasaki has emerged the victor of the Seiyū Grand Prix (in which votes were collected to compile a top ten list of voice actors) more times than any other voice actor.

He is represented by the voice actor management firm, 81 Produce, and was previously represented by Arts Vision.
