Corbett was born in West Virginia in 1961. Raised in a working-class family, his first inclination to entertain others was through his music. He got his first guitar when he was very young. But after he graduated from high school, he set his sights on a career in factory work. According to IMDb, Corbett stopped working at the factory after injuring his back. After training to become a hair stylist, he landed a career in film and television acting.

Corbett first started getting acting jobs in the late ’80s, with small roles in shows such as The Wonder Years. In 1990, he got his big break with a leading role in the series Northern Exposure. Corbett acted in the series from 1990 until 1995, receiving praise from both critics and viewers alike.

However, it is Corbett’s latest project that could really see a career resurgence for the talented actor. Reports recently started swirling that Corbett would be reprising his role as Aidan Shaw in And Just Like That…, the Sex and the City reboot series for HBO Max.

Although it was widely reported that Corbett would be in the first season of the show, the actor never materialized, with Corbett later claiming that it was a “joke.” However, media outlets are reporting that not only will Corbett be featured in the upcoming second season of the series, but that he will have a significant role as well. It’s too early to tell if Aidan and Carrie will be reigniting their love affair, but fans of the beloved series certainly have a lot to look forward to.
