Law & Order: SVU veteran Adam Beach is set to go on board for HBO polygamist drama Big Love's fourth season for a season-long recurring role as Tommy Flute, the son of Bill's (Bill Paxton) partner, the head of the Indian Gaming Casino Jerry Flute (Robert Beltran). Beach, 36, is best known for his roles as Marine Private First Class Ira Hayes in Flags of Our Fathers and Private Ben Yahzee in Windtalkers.
The HBO drama announced previously that it was on a lookout for two additions to its cast, including Barb's (Jeanne Tripplehorn) pre-teen niece and Cindy's (Judith Hoag) daughter and closeted gay Mormon and new Trustee of the Juniper Creek Assets who might also be a love interest for Alby (Matt Ross). Since Beach's role isn't any of these two things, Big Love is still looking for the two new characters.
Big Love was also recently embroiled in a controversy after the University of Utah accused HBO of infringing its copyright when a logo of the university was seen in a document the character of Paxton was holding in the season 3 finale last March.
