Andre Benjamin, better known as Andre 3000, is set to star in Jimi Hendrix biopic. According to the Irish Film And Television Network, the Outkast rapper will play Hendrix during his time in England between 1966 and 1967, as he prepared for his musical debut with the ‘Are You Experienced’ album.
The film, set to be titled “All Is By My Side”, will be directed by John Riley, the man responsible for movies including “Red Tails” and “U-Turn”.
It’s believed the rapper has already flown to Ireland to begin filming for his starring role. Not new to acting, however, Benjamin has already had small roles in several movies including “Idlewild”, “Four Brothers”, “Be Cool” and “Scary Movie 4″.
Do you think Andre 3000 was the right choice to take on this role? In my opinion, I couldn’t have picked a better choice. Can’t wait to see how well he’ll do.
