Josh Hartnett thought he'd play football for a living until an injury sent him in another direction. The actor started in television, appeared in such hit movies as Black Hawk Down and Pearl Harbor, and has since acted on the London stage and in independent films.
Along the way he was chosen one of the hottest under 21 and under 25, and one of the "50 Most Beautiful People" by People magazine.
This Leo's sexy, but Josh wants to prove he's not just another pretty face. Now he's focusing on his return to TV, playing an American sharpshooter on Showtime's Penny Dreadful, a horror series that plops characters like Dracula into turn-of-the-century London. Mayhem ensues.
