Actor to become regular on hit NBC show
By JOSEF ADALIAN
"Flags of Our Fathers" thesp Adam Beach is joining the cast of "Law & Order: SVU."
Beach, who had a guest turn as Brooklyn detective Chester Lake on an episode of the skein that aired Tuesday, is in final talks to become a series regular. He's expected to return later this season.
"SVU" creator Dick Wolf first worked with Beach on "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee," the HBO telepic Wolf produced. Beach has the lead role in the project, which is expected to debut in May and is already being considered one of the paybox's key longform Emmy contenders.
Beach's other credits include "Windtalkers," "Joe Dirt" and "Mystery, Alaska." He'll also appear in upcoming CBS mini "Comanche Moon," the Eye's follow-up to "Lonesome Dove."
