Cameron Crowe

April 21, 1997

Crowe, a former music reporter for Rolling Stone, was born on July 13, 1957 in Palm Springs. Most of his films consist of what some critics dub as either "Teen Angst" comedies or "Generation X" vehicles. The thing is that much of his work is far superior and more honest than that of most films about teenagers and twentysomethings. His first notoriety came when he wrote the book and screenplay for Fast Times at Ridgemont High, a look at the lives of suburban high school students has become a cult classic in some circles.

He made his debut as a director with the more insightful Say Anything, by far one of the best movies on the subject of teen romance. He followed it up with the incredibly witty (but less successful) tale of twentysomethings trying to get by in Seattle, titled Singles. Crowe has experianced his biggest success to date, with the box-office Tom Cruise vehicle Jerry Maguire. The film has grossed more than $100 million and has earned five academy award nominations (one of which was given to the film's scene-stealing co-star Cuba Gooding Jr.).
