    Link: Andre 3000 Will To Portray Jimi Hendrix Bio - Andre is currently filming the Jimi Hendrix biography movie in Ireland right now. It`s uncanny.

    Good casting, I think. He`s got okay acting skills so hopefully the director can take that and get the best out of him.

    Andre 3000 from outkast...he is extremely talented music wise. And no the numbers arent his actual last name. His real name is Andre Benjamin.

    He`s from Outkast, incase any of y`all don`t know..

    I`m torn. He looks a LOT like him, it`s awesome, but I`m not convinced on his acting ability. He hasn`t had much chance to prove himself..

    You guys should listen to Outkast. They`re good, and I don`t often like rap.

    One of the most influential musicians of all time playing one of the most influential musicians of all time, pretty damn cool if I say so myself.

    Ought to do a decent job too, only thing I`m skeptical of is the voice. Hope he pulls it off.

    I think it`s gonna get really confusing when he forgets parts of songs and starts mashes them up.

    But lean a little bit closer
    See that roses really smell like poo-oo-ooo,

    Apparently Hendrix`s family, whom he didn`t get on with very well, and hold all the rights to his music, aren`t letting them use any of it in this film.

    Outkast isn`t really rap imo. At the very least, Andre isn`t.

    And he was good in that Will Farrel basketball movie. As well as that musical set in the prohibition era. I forget both names of those movies, but he`s a good actor and I`m pretty sure he`s done as many movies as he`s done records.

    But yeah, Andre is my Barry White.

    He was also funny in that one movie with John Travolta. I don`t remember the name. The movie itself was kinda lame, but he was good.

    @marcus I`m a little rusty on copyright laws as they pertain to music (I actually studied this in school), but I believe they can only legally prevent them from using Jimi`s recorded music. In other words, they could re-record everything for the movie, basically "cover" his songs, and there`s not much his estate could do to stop it. The movie Ray is a good example, because they didn`t really use any (not much anyway) pre-recorded music.

    If that`s true, that definitely explains the andre3000 casting choice a little bit more. He was good in the small bits he had, but had never shown leading role star power- but if you need an actor with the voice...!

    @Fancysucksss

    I know who you`re talking about, and though I don`t think he looks much more like Hendrix than Andre does above, he sure as hell sounds/plays like him.

    The first 5 words are all you need. It will suck as long as they have a non-actor acting in the starring role.
