The teen heartthrob is currently filming an untitled movie with director Ron Shelton, then will start shooting Wicker Park, a film described as a Hitchcockian thriller. Hartnett most recently starred in 40 Days and 40 Nights. As for relationship status, the 24-year-old actor keeps mum on that subject right now, though in past interviews he mentioned a girlfriend in Minnesota who was a childhood sweetheart. Born in San Francisco, Hartnett grew up in St. Paul, Minn. He played football in high school, but an injury forced him off the field, which led him to try out for a school play. Acting almost immediately turned into a career for him. He got parts in local plays and commercials and moved to Los Angeles after graduating. Though he missed getting a role in Dawson's Creek, he nabbed a part in the little seen series Cracker. He went on to the movies: first in Halloween H2O. His other credits include The Faculty, Pearl Harbor, and Black Hawk Down.
