First Clips of Andre 3000 As Jimmy Hendrix Emerge For Upcoming Film “All Is By My Side”

Andre 3000 seems to look like Jimmy Hendrix reincarnated – so it seemed only fitting for Mr. 3000 to play Hendrix in the upcoming biopic All Is By My Side, a biopic for the legendary guitarist set to premiere next week at Austin’s Paramount Theatre … The project was spearheaded by John Ridley, the screenwriter for the now-Academy Award Winning Best Picture, 12 Years A Slave

Apparently, the Hendrix family didn’t approve this or whatever, so the film isn’t legally allowed to show or play any of Hendrix’s songs … Giant buzzkill … Seems like they’ll only be doing half of the story justice by being hampered in that way … The film is apparently focusing mainly on the side of Hendrix’s life that dealt with the sex, drugs, and partying (pretty sizable portion if you ask me) … We’ll see what they come up with …

The video clip released below is Hendrix (3000) talking to a friend Linda Kieth (played by Imogen Poots) in a NYC restaurant deciding whether or not to move to London or something like that ….

Hard to pinpoint the direction Andre 3000 was trying to go with nailing Jimi Hendrix’s voice … I don’t really know Hendrix’s voice, but Andre definitely altered his a little to assume the character … Check it out below:
