Since then he has appeared in over 60 TV and Film roles. His performance in the Academy Award nominated Clint Eastwood – directed Flags of Our Fathers (2006) was phenomenal. He played Ira Hayes, a Pima Native American Marine, and one of the six to raise the American flag on Iwo Jima, who found the resulting fame hard to handle – subsequently giving way to alcoholism. This alone would have been an emotional role for Adam play; however, during filming, both his grandmother and best friend passed away. His role as Hayes is both realistic and heartbreaking, earning him two Best Supporting Actor Award Nominations – he stands out well above the rest of the cast.

Adam has been further nominated for three Awards for his role in Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (2007) (TV) including a Golden Globe. He has put in terrific performances in the comedy film Joe Dirt (2001) and the John Woo World War II war epic Windtalkers (2002) in which he co-starred with Nicolas Cage.

He headlined the cast in the Walt Disney production The Last Great Warrior (1994), featured in John Singleton’s Four Brothers (2005) and starred with Harrison Ford and ‘Daniel Craig’ in the science fiction-western smash hit Cowboys & Aliens (2011). He is starring in (2008-) “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (1999) and “Big Love” (2006).

In 2011, he starred in Cowboys & Aliens, an American science fiction Western film directed by Jon Favreau and starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Olivia Wilde. The film is based on the 2006 graphic novel of the same name created by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg.

Also in 2011, Beach returned to Canada to star in the TV series Arctic Air, which will premiere in January, 2012.
