Outkast’s Andre 3000 is nothing if not colorful. So, it makes sense that he would portray one of the most colorful characters in music history: Jimi Hendrix.
Andre 3000 has been cast as the legendary guitarist for the upcoming biopic All Is By My Side. The film is currently shooting in Dublin, Ireland.
The photo below is the first look at Andre 3000 in full costume. The resemblence is quite stunning and rumors have it that cast members were doing double-takes when he walked out of his trailer in costume for the first time.
No release date has been set for All Is By My Side. The film focuses on Hendrix’s life after he moved to London in 1966. It was during this period that Hendrix recorded the 1967 classic album Are You Experienced. The movie was written by, and will be directed by, John Ridley.
Previously, Andre 3000 has acted in Be Cool opposite John Travolta and Uma Thurman and Four Brothers with Mark Wahlberg.
