Andre 3000 in Jimi Hendrix Biopic? Perrrfect…

July 10, 2011

It’s been years now since the first rumors of Outkast’s Andre 3000 partaking in a Jimi Hendrix biopic. The musician is such a dedicated Hendrix fan, he has been studying upfor the role since as early as 2004.

Andre 3000's familiarity with the Jimi Hendrix persona is not only mental, but strangely physical.

This week, actress Hayley Atwell revived hopes for the Hendrix biopic in a recent interview with Esquire, in which she exposes her participation in the project.

Andre 3000, born André Lauren Benjamin, is the ideal candidate to play the legendary rock guitarist. With a menial acting resume, which includes appearances in the films “Be Cool,” “Revolver” and “Four Brothers,” the Atlanta native has made a career crossover worthy of inheriting a role of this magnitude.

While Andre’s physical appearance is not far from Hendrix’s, even his mystic, colorful stage presence is of a familiar family to the late guitarist’s psychedelic roots.

And with such a deep knowledge of Hendrix’s past, his appearance isn’t the only familiar aspect of this pairing.

We’re looking forward to more rumors of this juicy project; but then again, we have been for like, seven years now…
