Tall, dark-haired and boyishly handsome, Josh Hartnett made an impressive big screen debut in an unlikely vehicle, "Halloween: H20", the 1998 installment of the horror film series, playing John, the son of Jamie Lee Curtis' tormented Laurie Strode. While the movie contained more screaming and bleeding than compelling performing, the young actor made the most of his role, capably conveying the character's sensitivity, will and determination. He proved a commanding screen presence, and was cast in the Robert Rodriguez-Kevin Williamson sci-fi teen thriller "The Faculty" (also 1998) as Zeke, one of a group of students struggling to stop an alien invasion starting at their high school. He would next prove himself in Sofia Coppola's feature directorial debut "The Virgin Suicides" and as the son of Warren Beatty and Diane Keaton in the comedy-drama "Town & Country" (both 1999).
