All of the biggest stars from the film will be participating including Kate Hudson, Frances McDormand, Billy Crudup, Patrick Fugit, Jason Lee, Zooey Deschanel and Jimmy Fallon.
Crowe will also be taking part in the podcast as well as Peter Frampton, who was a technical consultant on Almost Famous, and Nancy Wilson, who co-wrote the songs performed by the fictional band Stillwater.
