Almost Famous is Cameron Crowe’s semi-autobiographical flick about a teenage journalist trying to get his first article on the (fictitious) rock band Stillwater published with the acclaimed Rolling Stone magazine. The film was hailed by Roger Ebert as the film of the year, and it was nominated for 4 Academy Awards! The movie helped launch the careers of many of the actors who played some of the most memorable film characters of the decade. This list takes a look at the cast, what they’ve been up to, and just how big their bank accounts have become!
10. Billy Crudup
Estimated Net Worth: $6 million. Billy Crudup played the heart-throb musician, Russell Hammond, in Almost Famous, but his list of credentials is quite extensive.
