John Corbett Career

Corbett's musical journey began early as he started playing the guitar at the tender age of seven. At 16, he worked as a security guard at the Capitol Music Hall. He completed his education at Wheeling Central Catholic High School, graduating in 1979.

Following high school, Corbett relocated to Bellflower, California, to live with his father and stepmother. He spent six years working at Kaiser Steel in Fontana. During his time there, he pursued a brief aspiration to become an L.A. County Deputy Sheriff, undergoing a year of training, though he didn't pass the exams. After injuring his back and leaving the factory job, he enrolled in hairdressing classes at Cerritos College in Norwalk.

It was during this time that he also studied acting. He fondly recollected, “I went to hair school by day and studied theatre at night.” He has held a hair stylist license since 1986. His journey continued with a Samsung commercial that marked the beginning of his presence in over 50 national commercials.

Corbett's debut role arrived in 1988 when he portrayed Louis, the hippie boyfriend of Karen Arnold (played by Olivia d'Abo) in the initial season of ABC's comedic-dramatic series The Wonder Years, credited as Jack Corbett.

His most prominent television role came from 1990 to 1995 as Chris Stevens in the CBS comedy-drama series Northern Exposure, which earned him nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries, or Television Film, as well as the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

His portrayal of Adam MacArthur in the short-lived Fox science fiction series The Visitor in 1997 earned him a Saturn Award nomination for Best Actor on Television. He found himself abducted by aliens, returning to Earth with special abilities half a century later. From 2001 to 2002, he played Aidan Shaw, the romantic interest of Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), in HBO's comedy series Sex and the City. This role secured him a second Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Corbett's film career flourished with roles like Ian Miller in the romantic comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002), earning him a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination. He starred in the FX dark comedy series Lucky (2003), the comedy-drama Raising Helen (2004), and the musical drama Raise Your Voice (2004). In 2007, he played a significant role in the Pang brothers horror film The Messengers.

His diverse acting career included a wide array of roles, such as the Lifetime television film Montana Sky (2007), a corrupt LAPD vice squad member in Street Kings (2008), and romantic comedies like I Hate Valentine's Day (2009) and Baby on Board (2009). Corbett's portrayal of Max Gregson in the Showtime series United States of Tara (2009–2011) and his reprisal of Aidan Shaw in Sex and the City 2 (2010) further solidified his reputation.

Continuing his television journey, Corbett played Seth Holt on the NBC drama Parenthood (2011–2015) and appeared in shows like NCIS: Los Angeles (2013), portraying Special Agent Roy Haines, and Portlandia (2017), where he guest-starred as himself. He also embraced the role of Dr. Dan Covey in the film adaptation of Jenny Han's novel To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018).

In addition to his acting pursuits, Corbett ventured into the world of music. He starred in the Scorpions' music video for “Woman” in 1993 and signed a recording deal with Broken Bow Records in 2004. His self-titled debut album, released in 2006, included the single “Good to Go,” which made an impressive debut on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
