Man I really wanted to see how Andre 3000 would do playing Jimi Hendrix. I thought he would of been good in playing him. I guess now he can just focus on his music and any other movies he is going to be in. What I really want to see and other people want to see is a new Outkast album. I don’t count the last one as an album because it was written for a soundtrack. These guys have to be in my top 10 favorite hip hop groups of all time. (Rest of Article Below).
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.
