He is best known for playing Chris Stevens on Northern Exposure from 1990 to 1995; and Aidan, Carrie Bradshaw's boyfriend, on Sex and the City—a role which he reprised for the series movie sequel Sex and the City 2.

Corbett was born in Wheeling, West Virginia on May 9, 1961, the son of John Joseph Corbett, Sr. He lived with his mother in an apartment block near the Ohio River in West Virginia. His mother was a waitress who worked in his uncle's music club. Corbett attended Wheeling Central Catholic High School where he graduated in 1979. He started playing the guitar at age 7, and at 16 he had a job as a security guard at the Capitol Music Hall. Following his graduation from high school, Corbett moved to California, and worked in a steel factory for six years. During his time as a boiler maker in the factory, Corbett spent a year training to become an L.A. County Deputy Sheriff, but ultimately failed. He stopped working at the factory when he got injured, and went to Cerritos College in Norwalk, California. There he took acting classes, and studied hair dressing, for a year. Corbett said: "I went to hair school by day and studied theatre at night." He is a licensed hair stylist since 1986. He then landed a Samsung commercial, and after three years he had starred in 50 national commercials.
Corbett was raised Roman Catholic, but is now a born-again Christian, though he doesn't attend church. He has never been married, and has stated that he does not see himself getting married or having children. He has been in a long-term relationship with actress Bo Derek since 2002.
