Best Local Boy Made Good (2014)

Josh Hartnett

Born in St. Paul, Joshua Daniel Hartnett attended Cretin-Derham Hall and South High School before leaving our snowy tundra to stake out a career as an actor. He rose to fame as a heartthrob in Pearl Harbor and a staff sergeant in Black Hawk Down before tackling the role of Matt Sullivan in 40 Days and 40 Nights, which was all about his effort to not sleep with a girl. But Mr. Hot-Nett (as women are prone to call him) is more than just a pretty face. This year he returned home to support the mayoral candidacy of Betsy Hodges, who would go on to victory. "Betsy Hodges is my choice for mayor of Minneapolis because she is a fierce advocate for social progress and equality who has 21st-century solutions to keep Minneapolis moving forward," Hartnett said. Currently starring in Penny Dreadful on Showtime, Hartnett can also be seen locally holding court at Tilia.
