The Hot List, Part III: More Handsome Dudes and Manly Men [25 Pictures]


Are you ready for round 3? In our Hot List series we've thus far seen a handful each of hot—popular, talented, and yes of course attractive—Native actors and actresses. We told you there would be more. Here's another salvo of handsome male thespians. None of these are in any strict order, and this group is on the whole more accomplished than the first. It's also more diverse than the Lakota-fest we had the first time around, with entries from Salteaux First Nation and Hawaii.

Adam Beach

Clean-cut and still boyishly handsome at 41, Adam Beach has had a prolific career in film and television, and seems equally at ease working in Hollywood and the Canadian film industry. His most recent run on TV was as Bobby Martin, the lead character on Arctic Air, a CBC series that finished its third and final season earlier this year. Previously he'd been seen on HBO's Big Love and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Beach has been a regular in Native-themed films and TV-movies, appearing in such familiar titles as Smoke Signals, Windtalkers, and Skinwalkers, but his profile made a quantum leap with his performance as Ira Hayes in Flags of Our Fathers, the acclaimed drama (directed by Clint Eastwood) about the lives of the six soldiers who raised the American flag at Iwo Jima in World War II. Beach is an outspoken advocate for First Nations causes, and uses his star power to draw attention to the fight against tar sands extraction and the Keystone XL Pipeline.
