Josh Hartnett Career

After Hartnett graduated from Minneapolis South High School in 1996, he moved to New York to attend the Conservatory of Theatre Arts & Film at SUNY Purchase, which did not go as well as he had hoped. At 19, Harnett moved to Los Angeles. Shortly after arriving, he caught an improbable break, landing a part in the short-lived but acclaimed drama Cracker, on ABC. Although the series was cancelled after sixteen episodes, Hartnett had made a name for himself. He then began to focus on feature film work. He performed in small plays and on national television commercials before being cast in his first feature film, playing the son of Jamie Lee Curtis' character in Halloween H20: 20 Years Later. Released on August 5, 1998, it performed well at the box office.

Hartnett developed a Hollywood film career, appearing in major films, including The Faculty, Black Hawk Down, Lucky Number Slevin and Pearl Harbor. He was originally scheduled to play the role of Tino in Deuces Wild, but dropped out to star in Pearl Harbor. In 2002, he starred in O, an adaptation of William Shakespeare's Othello set in an American high school, as Hugo, the film's version of Iago. In the early 2000s, Hartnett was approached several times to play the role of Clark Kent / Superman for a project originally helmed by Brett Ratner but always turned it down, not wanting to commit to a predicted ten-year role. Hartnett said of his decision, "It just wasn't the kind of movie I wanted to do. I turned down other superhero roles as well."

Hartnett was chosen as one of Teen People magazine's "21 Hottest Stars Under 21" in 1999, Teen People's "25 Hottest Stars under 25", and one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People", both in 2002. He was also voted Bliss magazine's "3rd Sexiest Male", and in 2003 PETA named him the Sexiest Vegetarian Alive, as chosen by voters.

One of Hartnett's next films was the 2006 drama-mystery The Black Dahlia, in which he played a detective investigating the notorious real-life murder of waitress Elizabeth Short. Hartnett had been cast in the role five years before the film was produced, remaining committed to appearing in the movie because he liked the subject matter.

Among his 2007 roles were Resurrecting the Champ and the graphic novel-based 30 Days of Night, in which he played a small-town sheriff. Hartnett described the second film as "supernatural, but kind of a western". He was going to play trumpet player Chet Baker in the film The Prince of Cool, but did not agree with the producer's ideas and left the project.

In 2008, Hartnett played Charlie Babbit in the theatre adaptation of Barry Morrow's Academy Award-winning Rain Man at the Apollo Theatre in London's West End. He starred in the new campaign of the Emporio Armani fragrance, "Diamonds for Men", being featured in both print and TV ads for the fragrance, thus becoming the first male celebrity to represent Giorgio Armani Beauty.

He has been featured on many magazine covers, such as Cosmogirl, Details, Entertainment Weekly, Girlfriend, Seventeen, Vanity Fair, GQ and Vman, in addition to being in other magazines like Vogue, ELLE, People, Glamour, In Touch and InStyle.

In 2009, Hartnett produced the video clip for the rapper Kid Cudi's song "Pursuit of Happiness”.

In 2013, Hartnett was a guest of honor on Off Plus Camera.

In 2014, he was cast in the part of Ethan Chandler in the Gothic horror series Penny Dreadful, shot in locations around Dublin and Ireland. Later Hartnett's character was revealed to be Lawrence Talbot / the Wolfman, who had changed his name to distance himself from his family.

Hartnett starred in Guy Ritchie's 2021 revenge drama film Wrath of Man in a supporting role before Ritchie cast him in his upcoming film Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre,. In January 2022, Hartnett was cast as Ernest Lawrence in Christopher Nolan's upcoming film Oppenheimer. In July 2022, he joined sixth season of Black Mirror.

No hit movie for 11 years... but why would Kate Beckinsale care when she can get £30,000 for every Instagram post?, August 6, 2023
She danced, she twerked and she sang. She changed from a figure-hugging sparkling silver bodysuit into a slinky red peekaboo cut-out dress slit to the thigh, then to a Playboy bunny outfit with push-up bustier and floppy rabbit ears (right). As she celebrated her 50th birthday last week, Kate Beckinsale proved that she can look and act like a woman half her age - a priceless talent for an actress in Hollywood where turning 30 can be career suicide. 'What a party - full of love and glitter and the best people,' the Oxford-educated actress wrote on Instagram. Ms Beckinsale is one of the most successful British actresses in Hollywood, yet it has been 11 years since she last appeared in a film that earned more than $100 million (£78 million): the remake of Total Recall. The 2001 blockbuster Pearl Harbor (inset), where she appeared alongside Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett, was expected to launch a stellar screen career. 'Pearl Harbor was a costly missed opportunity,' says talent manager Wendy Wright. 'Critics panned the film and audiences were left unimpressed.'

Christopher Nolan says Josh Hartnett never screen tested to play Batman... despite actor's claims he was punished for turning down the part, July 20, 2023
Eight years after Josh Hartnett claimed he was punished for turning down the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman, filmmaker Christopher Nolan reveals the actor never even screen-tested to star in his $2.4B-grossing Dark Knight trilogy. 'It never got that far. I mean, I met with with Josh. And as I recall, he was a young actor whose work I was very interested in,' the 52-year-old Englishman said on Thursday's episode of Happy Sad Confused with Josh Horowitz.

Josh Hartnett rocks a quirky cardigan as he returns to his hotel after the Oppenheimer premiere, July 14, 2023
Josh Hartnett caught the eye in a quirky colourful striped cardigan as he returned to London's Corinthia Hotel on Thursday night. The actor, 44, was joined by his wife Tamsin Egerton as they made their way back to their accommodation hours after making a rare public appearance together at the Oppenheimer London premiere.  And Josh happily ditched the suave grey suit her wore on the black carpet for a more casual look, as he rocked the multicoloured knitwear teamed with dark grey jeans.
