Andre 3000 Will Play Jimi Hendrix

54 posts in this topic

OutKast member, Gillette spokesman and person cooler than all of us Andre 3000 has long been rumored to play Jimi Hendrix in a biopic on the late musician's life, but all we've heard so far is hearsay and possibilities. But thanks to Irish Film and Television Network, we've got some definitive news.

The site reports that shooting for All Is By My Side will begin in Ireland in June and will "document Hendrix’s period in England over 1966 and 1967," the period before and during recording of his revolutionary debut album Are You Experienced?

The film will focus on Hendrix's early years, from playing in small New York clubs to being discovered by the Animals' Chas Chandler and flown to London to begin work on Experienced. While Hendrix had Irish blood, it's most likely that Ireland will be filling in for another locale more prominent to the guitarist's life.

Great pick. Definitely looking forward to the soundtrack as well. Hendrix is one of my favorite musicians of all-time, and so is 3k/Outkast.

Prob the best choice in Hollywood. Andre is a respectable actor with real music chops.
