Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix

For some time now it’s been known that Andre Benjamin aka Andre 3000 would play the role of Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming biopic about Hendrix entitled  Jimi: All Is By My Side.

 

We finally get to see some footage from John Ridley’s (12 Years A Slave) much anticipated flick which will premiere on March 12th at SXSW.  Covering a year in Hendrix’s life from 1966-67 as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York’s Cheetah Club to making his mark in London’s music scene up until his Monterey Pop triumph, the film presents an intimate portrait of the sensitive young musician on the verge of becoming a rock legend. And they couldn’t of cast a better person for the role. They couldn’t have cast a better  man for the role, Andre both looks incredibly similar to Jimi and has  a eccentricity and spirit which very well parallels that of the late Mr. Hendrix.
