Almost Famous was directed by Cameron Crowe, not Jon Favreau.
Since Swingers was released ten years ago and Favreau looks much different now, I took the liberty of updating his picture.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hypermagic (talk • contribs) 18:46, 27 June 2006.
No mention of his work in Friends? I would call that his break-out role, really. He probably got more publicity and acclaim for that than any of his films by that point.
I forgot to login when I did it, but I fixed the birthday on the infobox to show the day he was born, not the 1927 date that was there. I really doubt he waited 40 or so years before graduating college with no prior history.Atomic1fire (talk) 22:35, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
The other Jon Favreau
- There is now (since April, at least). Jon Favreau (speechwriter). —Josiah Rowe (talk • contribs) 22:45, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
- Why does "Jon Favreau" default to the actor guy? Is that decision based on the number of times someone accesses his page? Why not a disambiguation page? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:42, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Executive Producer Credits
Shouldn't his work as a producer, especially executive producer, be credited as well? I know it's been officially confirmed that he's the executive producer for the 2011 movie The Avengers. Mrobviousjosh (talk) 09:41, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Heres a ref for this project;
This is more than enough proof that Kolia's his middle name.

- OK, I'll restore. The "View details" button and links didn't make the text name readily apparent. --Tenebrae (talk) 18:56, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
Actor-Director Section Needs Cleaning
The actor-director section is pretty messy. There's no clear flow, either chronologically or by project. It's just a painful mess to read. I don't have time to work on it at the moment, but I'll take a whack at it later if someone doesn't beat me to it.DenJansen (talk) 22:06, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Separate tables for acting, writing and producing credits
Instead of having all the credits in one giant table, is anyone opposed to separating them and having a table for each thing, of course some titles would be repeated but I find it easier because he didn't start writing or directing until later so the acting credits should be on their own.
