Almost Famous hit cinemas for the first time 20 years ago this year, and to celebrate the anniversary the case of the iconic film has reunited for James Andrew Miller’s Origins podcast.
Across five episodes, the podcast goes into all details around the film, giving behind-the-scenes information from those who were there – the film’s cast and crew.
The stars of the film, including Kate Hudson, Billy Crudup, Zooey Deschanel, Jimmy Fallon, Frances McDormand, Jason Lee, Patrick Fugit and Peter Frampton, all appear at some point in the podcast, as well as the film’s director Cameron Crowe.
In addition, Heart’s Nancy Wilson, who co-wrote the music for the film alongside Peter Frampton, also guests on the podcast.
Interesting bit of information that came to light from the podcast: Brad Pitt almost had the role of Russell Hammond, played by Billy Crudup, though he obviously pulled out.
