Andre 3000 in Jimi Hendrix Biopic? Perrrfect…
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.
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…
