Andre 3000 To Play Jimi Hendrix in Biopic
Andree 3000 may get his wish he hoped for. Actress Hayley Atwell broke the news in an interview stating what her next projects were. “Possibly a Jimi Hendrix biopic. An independent film with Andre 3000 from OutKast playing Jimi Hendrix.”
It’s no surprise there, being that Andre 3000 has a striking resemblance and inspired fashion style as the rock star. In the early 2000s, Mr. 3000 made it clear that he would hope to play Jimi Hendrix in an biopic but due to Jimi Hendrix’s estate they declined his music to be apart of the movie. Andre 3000 has been in many films prior. “Four Brothers“, “Be Cool“, “Outkast: Idlewild” and “Scary Movie 4” — hit big in the box office. The Jimi Hendrix biopic will be his 13th movie on the big screen.
The soul rapper/actor hasn’t been physically seen lately but he has been making appearances on featured songs such as Chris Brown‘s “Deuces (Remix)”, Ciara‘s “Ride (Remix)” and Beyonce‘s “Party”.
