Jimi Hendrix Biopic To Star OutKast Singer Andre 3000?

(Gibson) OutKast singer Andre 3000 is set to play the lead role in a forthcoming biopic of Jimi Hendrix…maybe. In a profile piece for Esquire, British actress Hayley Atwell divulged the news as a "possibility."

"Next up is possibly a Jimi Hendrix biopic — an independent film with André 3000 from OutKast playing Jimi Hendrix," Atwell said. "But I don't know, really."

The OutKast singer, whose real name is André Benjamin, has been lobbying for the Hendrix film since 2004. At that time, he told the New York Daily News he was fascinated by Hendrix's dual personality. "Jimi was wild onstage," he said. "Off-stage, he was really calm." more on this story
