Josh Hartnett, born Joshua Daniel, is born in Saint Paul, Minnesota on July 21, 1978, but his parents divorced shortly after his birth and he was raised by his father and his new wife according to a purely Catholic upbringing. After attending Purchase College in New York, he moved to Los Angeles at just 19, where he was offered the role of Michael Fitzgerald in the TV series. Cracker (1997) and, although this was canceled after only sixteen episodes, it allowed the young Hartnett to take his first steps in show business.
Now determined to pursue the profession of actor, he begins to act in some theatrical shows and in television commercials, until he is cast for his first film, the sequel to the famous horror saga Halloween – 20 years later (1998), where he stars alongside the established star Jamie Lee Curtis and the then rising star Michelle Williams. In the same year he took part in the sci-fi film shot by Robert Rodriguez, The Faculty, in which he is one of the protagonists together with Elijah Wood. With such a brilliant start, his career can only take off and these first works are followed by others, including the drama The garden of virgin suicides (1999) directed by Sofia Coppola and the historian Pearl Harbor (2001) of Michael Bay, in particular the latter, which although still misunderstood sees him at the center of the scene next to Ben Affleck, is what definitively affirms his fame, as well as his acting skills, and which allows him, thanks to the experience gained on the “battlefield” to be part of the illustrious cast of Black Hawk Down of Ridley Scott.

He also alternated his work on the big screen with small pauses for reflection, in which he wondered if acting was really his path, but the answer was fortunately a continuation of his commitment, although he declared that success in the world of entertainment did not is an indication of happiness. Also in the 2000s, with a U-turn, he turns to the dark colors with which he had started earlier with the thriller. Black Dahlia (2006) of Brian De Palma, then with a real return to horror with 30 days of darkness (2007) and especially when he joined the cast of the TV series Penny Dreadful (2014) as Werewolf. 2017 sees him at the cinema, which he has never abandoned as well as the theater, with The last descent, a survival thriller inspired by the true story of Olympic hockey champion Eric LeMarque.
