Joel Beckett (born 27 November 1973) is an English actor, best known for playing Jake Moon in the popular BBC soap opera EastEnders from December 2004 to October 2006 and as Lee in the British comedy series The Office. He was educated at Bedford School.

His EastEnders character was involved in the ratings-grabbing Get Johnny storyline in March 2006, when Jake shot dead his brother Danny, who was about to kill Phil and Grant Mitchell under the orders of Johnny Allen.
