Jimmy Fallon, that guitar-strumming guy from Saturday Night Live, appears in Almost Famous — no, really, he does. ”A lot of people are coming up to me saying ‘I can’t believe it,’ ” says Fallon, 26. ”I have to tell everyone, ‘I’m the guy who does the Mick Jagger line.’ ” Fallon may rank as one of People‘s Most Eligible Bachelors, but his Famous cameo — as shaggy rock manager Dennis Hope — forced him to hide his winsome looks under dork glasses, too-tight ’70s threads, and a patchy beard. ”I look like Brian Wilson’s hair,” quips Fallon. ”Like a character out of Mad magazine.”
