In 2005, Hirsch starred in Catherine Hardwicke's film Lords of Dogtown (2005) about a group of skaters in the 1970s and their role in the birth of skateboard culture. Hirsch played Jay Adams. He played a character based on a real-life drug dealer, Jesse James Hollywood, in Alpha Dog (2007).

Hirsch played Christopher McCandless in Into the Wild (2007). He lost 40 pounds for the role, which earned him a Screen Actors Guild nomination for best actor.[8] Esquire said, "[Hirsch] creates a vivid, unforgettable character you at once admire and pity."[9]

Hirsch had the title role in Lilly and Lana Wachowski's Speed Racer, which was released on May 9, 2008.[10] Hirsch played gay-rights activist Cleve Jones in Gus Van Sant's biopic Milk (2008).

In April 2011, he was cast in Oliver Stone's Savages, which was released in July 2012.[11]

In 2012, Hirsch starred with Penélope Cruz in Venuto al Mondo, a film by Italian director Sergio Castellitto. In 2013, he was in Prince Avalanche, co-starring Paul Rudd.

Hirsch also starred in The Motel Life, co-starring Dakota Fanning and Stephen Dorff, directed by the Polsky brothers. In fall 2013, he starred with Holliday Grainger, Holly Hunter, and William Hurt in the miniseries Bonnie & Clyde.

On May 25, 2018, Hirsch becomes the new voice for character James Lake Jr. in the Netflix original DreamWorks show Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia from Guillermo del Toro, replacing Anton Yelchin in its third season following his death in 2016. Hirsch is set to reprise his role in 3 Below and Wizards.

Personal life

Hirsch splits his time between Venice, California, and Atlanta, Georgia.

In 2008, he travelled to the Democratic Republic of Congo along with four young activists and kept a journal of his five-day trip. Reflecting on his trip, Hirsch said, "Now I look back at some of the earlier parts of this travelogue and almost chuckle at my naïveté. Maybe we can all come together to change the world."[13]

On October 27, 2013, Hirsch's first child was born, a boy named Valor. The child's mother is a woman Hirsch dated; however, they are no longer in a relationship.[14][15]

Conviction for assault

On February 12, 2015, Hirsch was charged with aggravated assault after initiating an altercation with, and then strangling to the point of unconsciousness, Paramount Pictures executive Daniele Bernfeld on January 25, 2015, at Tao Nightclub in Park City, Utah.[16][17] On August 17, 2015, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault, and was sentenced to 15 days in jail. He was also fined $4,750, received 90 days of probation, and ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service.[18][19]
