Josh Hartnett stars in "Penny Dreadful" on Showtime as Ethan Chandler, a charming American who finds himself trapped in the darkest corners of Victorian London.

Actor and producer Josh Hartnett has starred in a wide range of blockbuster and indie films.
He was born in San Francisco and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He first came to audiences' attention as Michael "Fitz" Fitzgerald in the television series "Cracker: Mind Over Murder." He made his feature film debut in 1998, co-starring with Jamie Lee Curtis in "Halloween H20: 20 Years Later" for Miramax. That same year, he received an MTV Movie Award nomination for Best Breakthrough Performance. Also in 1998, Josh starred in "The Faculty," directed by Robert Rodriguez, again for Miramax. In 1999 he starred opposite Kirsten Dunst in Paramount Classics' critically acclaimed black comedy "The Virgin Suicides," Sofia Coppola's directorial debut.

In 2001, Hartnett hit a stride by starring in three features. He portrayed the antagonist in the Lionsgate's "O," a modern day version of "Othello." His portrayal of the dark and dangerous Hugo earned him widespread praise. He then landed the role of Capt. Danny Walker, opposite Ben Affleck, in Michael Bay's blockbuster film "Pearl Harbor." Hartnett then starred alongside Shannyn Sossamon in the comedy "40 Days and 40 Nights" and opposite Harrison Ford in the action comedy "Hollywood Homicide" before segueing to Morocco, where he starred in Revolution Studios' "Black Hawk Down" for director Ridley Scott, again, a Jerry Bruckheimer production. The film, which was based on Mark Bowden's 1999 nonfiction novel of the same name, told the story of an ill-fated 1993 U.S. humanitarian mission in Somalia. In 2002, the National Association of Theater Owners awarded Hartnett the ShoWest 2002 Male Star of Tomorrow Award. That same year, he was also named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People."

Hartnett starred in MGM's "Wicker Park," opposite Diane Kruger and Rose Byrne, for director Paul McGuigan, Miramax's "Sin City" for director Robert Rodriguez, and "Mozart and the Whale," a love story between two people with Asperger's Syndrome, written by Ron Bass. In 2006, he starred in "Lucky Number Slevin" with Morgan Freeman and Bruce Willis for The Weinstein Company, and in Brian De Palma's "The Black Dahlia." Additional film credits include "Blow Dry," "Town and Country" and "Here on Earth."

Hartnett more recently starred in "Resurrecting the Champ," opposite Samuel L. Jackson, directed by Rod Lurie; the horror thriller "30 Days of Night"; "August," alongside Naomie Harris and Adam Scott; "I Come with the Rain" for director Anh Hung Tran ("The Scent of the Green Papaya"); "Girl Walks into a Bar" with Gil Bellows, Xander Berkeley and Alexis Bledel; and "Stuck Between Stations," opposite Sam Rosen, Zoe Lister Jones and Michael Imperioli.
