Outkast’s Andre Benjamin, aka Andre 3000, who is slated to play the late Jimi
Hendrix in the upcoming biopic titled “All Is By My Side” was caught by
photographers on the set in Dublin where the film is being shot, and Andre is in full costume with the Hendrix-style fro!
The film which is centered around Hendrix’s time in London during the late ’60s
prior to his death, pushed ahead with production prior to receiving permission
from the Hendrix estate to use his original music.Since the Hendrix estate responding negatively to the project thus far, it is not
likely that the film will include any original music. But according to the
Classic Rock, Chickenfoot drummer Kenny Aronoff who took part in the intense
recording session for the film score wonders if the Hendrix family would be
skipping out on royalty fees without striking a deal.
Pop the Hood on the pics below and let us know what you think. Although there is
a striking resemblance to the late guitarist, we wonder if Andre’s acting skills
can go the distance.
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
