Outkast’s Andre 3000 did not have to stray far from who he already is as a creative being to embody the role of rock legend, Jimi Hendrix. In the trailer to the September 26 release ‘Jimi: All Is by My Side’, Andre delivers a very believable performance as he recreates what could have possibly been himself in the 70’s. The film focuses on the musician’s prefame London days, and in the trailer, Andre pulls out an occasional british accent, as well as finds love with some of London’s foxy ladies.
Hayley Atwell and Imogen Poots co-star in the film, and John Ridley, who won an Oscar for writing 12 Years a Slave makes his directorial debut here. Check out the ‘groovy’ 70’s inspired biopic trailer below. Are you interested?
