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

@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.

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...!

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.

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.

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.

I think it`s gonna get really confusing when he forgets parts of songs and starts mashes them up.
"Purple Haze Ya",
"Hey Joe, I know you`d like to think your shat don`t stank
But lean a little bit closer
See that roses really smell like poo-oo-ooo,

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.

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

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..

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