Aidan Scott (Action Point) will star as Helmeppo, a serviceman under Vice Admiral Monkey D. Garp. McKinley Belcher III (Ozark) will play Arlong, a sawshark fish-man who also leads a gang of pirates. Finally, Vincent Regan (Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom) is playing Garp.
Previously, Netflix revealed the first One Piece cast members back in November. Iñaki Godoy is headlining the show as Luffy. He will be joined by Mackenyu (Roronoa Zoro), Emily Rudd (Nami), Jacob Romero Gibson (Usopp), and Taz Skylar (Sanji).
