Andre 3000 Still Slated To Play Jimi Hendrix In Biopic


 Andre 3000 Still Slated To Play Jimi Hendrix In Biopic

After the announcement was made last year, Three Stacks is supposedly still playing the legendary performer.

Andre 3000 was originally tapped to play Jimi Hendrix in a biopic last year, but it’s been silent on the news front since. But according to actress Hayley Atwell, the Outkast member is still slated to be in the flick.

Speaking with Esquire, the Captain America star explained that Three Stacks is signed on to appear as Hendrix in the independent flick. “Next up is possibly a Jimi Hendrix biopic — an independent film with Andre 3000 from OutKast playing Jimi Hendrix. But I don't know, really. The Atwell team is like, Let's just wait and see,” she said.

Andre previously appeared in the 2008 flick Semi-Pro, though has relatively quiet since then. He is supposedly working on a solo album to be released this year in anticipation of an Outkast LP to drop in 2012.

As a huge Hendrix fan, I'm curious to see what 3K adds to his character to make it his own....if done right 3K could go after some Oscar nods

Was hoping Lenny Kravitz would get the role. I feel he doesn't get enough respect.
