Almost Famous Director

Director

If you haven't figured it out by now, Cameron Crowe is a talented dude. He was already an outstanding well-established writer (seriously, how many 15-year-olds get gigs writing about rock stars for freaking Rolling Stone?) when he said to himself, "Hey, you know what? I'm just going to go and write and direct a feature film and see how it goes." We guess it went pretty well, because 1989's Say Anything… turned out to be an exceptional first effort. This dude hasn't looked back since.

There are only a handful of directors out there today who actually write the scripts for their own films. Wes Anderson, Joel and Ethan Coen, and Christopher Nolan are just a few of those multi-talented artists. We're pretty sure Cameron Crowe can throw down with the best of them.
