Adam Beach's defining role?

Arctic Air flies into CBC-TV winter season

Comedian Gerry Dee, Dragon Kevin O'Leary featured in new shows

In Arctic Air, Beach plays Bobby Martin, part owner of a small, family-run airline that serves communities in the North.

"He's very much a real guy that's trying to do good, but gets himself in these predicaments that build chaos," Beach said. Bobby crashes a plane in one episode and tries to sell one to raise some cash in another.
And:Beach's previous roles have included films such as Flags of Our Fathers and Cowboys & Aliens, as well as TV shows like Law & Order: SVU and Big Love. However, he's put his career in Los Angeles aside for now. He embraced the Arctic Air role when Ian Weir, producer of the Asian gang miniseries Dragon Boys, approached him with the project.

"This probably will define my career, because of my character, because of me being from Canada and a show that is going to be nationally accepted and viewed as a new demographic for Canadian television," he said.

And the great thing about being Canadian on a Canadian show is, CTV has to have about five or six hours a week of Canadian shows anyway. I think it's this, Degrassi: The Next Generation, and Canadian Idol, which has "Canadian" in the title.
