Josh Hartnett has gone from that guy who strikes you as oddly familiar to the guy in Pearl Harbor and now into his own as a leading man with films like Black Hawk Down and 40 Days and 40 Nights.

It's kind of funny then to trace back through Josh's career and see the roles that he wasn't picked for. One oft-cited example was the fact that he auditioned for Dawson's Creek, made the call-back sheet four more times and still failed to make the cut for the hit teen show. Another great mis-step was the failing to cast him in Jerry Bruckheimer's Remember The Titans. However, the side story to missing out on the big Bruckheimer hit has turned out to be Hartnett's jumping stone to success.

He followed missing out on Remember The Titans to co-star in Pearl Harbor (another Bruckeheimer film and another war film, the critically loved Black Hawk Down, with, you guessed it, Bruckheimer as producer. Now with several films on the go and Hartnett starring as the lead in all of them it is doubtful that there will be any more of the audition process left to haunt Hartnett at all.
