Here Is Andre 3000 Playing Jimi Hendrix, at Last
He plays opposite Imogen Poots in this clip from the 'All Is by My Side' biopic
At last, we can see André 3000 in action as Jimi Hendrix. We’ve known about the All Is By My Side biopic since 2012 — the OutKast star even spoke to SPIN about it — but it wasn’t until last July that we even saw a picture of him as the late, great rock legend. But now that the film is SXSW-bound, a preview has emerged. Above, you can watch Mr. Benjamin talking about the impending Monterey Pop Festival to Imogen Poots as model Linda Keith (the subject of the Rolling Stones’ “Ruby Tuesday”). He flirts, and plays humble, but she tears down his ruse with a few pointed words. The film was written and directed by John Ridley, who wrote the Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave.
