Hartnett’s relocation to New York to join the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Theatre Arts & Film after graduating from Minneapolis South High School in the year 1996 did not go as planned. Harnett migrated to Los Angeles when he was 19 years old. Shortly after landing, he landed an unlikely role in ABC’s short-lived but critically praised drama Cracker. Even though the show was canceled after 16 episodes, Hartnett had established himself.

He then turned his attention to feature film work. He appeared in small plays as well as national television advertisements before being featured in his first feature film, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later. In the movie, he portrayed the son of Jamie Lee Curtis’ character. It was launched on August 5, 1998, and it was a box office success.

Hartnett was contacted multiple times in the early 2000s to play Clark Kent/Superman in a project initially directed by Brett Ratner. Still, he always declined, citing his unwillingness to commit to a ten-year role. When asked about his decision, Hartnett stated, “It wasn’t the type of film I wanted to make. Other superhero roles were also turned down.”

In 1999, Hartnett was named one among Teen People magazine’s “21 Hottest Stars Under 21,” “25 Hottest Stars Under 25,” as well as part of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People,” all of which were published in 2002. He was also ranked the “3rd Sexiest Male” by Bliss magazine, and in the year 2003, PETA named him the “Sexiest Vegetarian Alive” by voters.

The Black Dahlia, a 2006 drama-mystery in which Hartnett played a detective investigating the infamous real-life murder of the waitress Elizabeth Short, was among Hartnett’s next films. Hartnett had been portrayed in the role five years before the film’s release, and he remained committed to the project because he enjoyed the subject matter.

Resurrecting the Champ, a drama co-starring Samuel L. Jackson, as well as the graphic novel-centered 30 Days of Night, in which he portrayed a small sheriff, were two of his 2007 roles. “Supernatural, but still a western,” Hartnett said of the second film. He was supposed to play trumpeter Chet Baker in the film The Prince of Cool, but he didn’t like the producer’s ideas and dropped out.


He appeared as Ethan Chandler in the horror television series, which was titled Penny Dreadful from 2014 to 2016, for which he got nominated for the Fangoria Chainsaw Award.
