Photo of the Day: Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in ‘All Is By My Side’
Last year, several photos leaked from the highly anticipated Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side. Andre 3000, dressed head to toe in 1970’s fashion, could easily pass for the brother of the rock legend.
Today, the Toronto Film Festival released the first official photo from the flick, which will delve into Hendrix’s early years before he skyrocketed to rock god status. Although his estate wouldn’t grant producers the rights to his music, 3 Stacks will be performing several song covers including The Beatles, Muddy Waters and Elvis Presley.
“In researching him, I saw a lot of the paths that he went down were the same ones that I went down when I was a young kid. He did what he thought was right for his music. I always gravitated towards him. … This movie is the real s— right here. I think people will learn things they didn’t know,” Andre previously told SPIN of filling Hendrix’s legendary shoes.
All Is By My Side will debut at the Toronto Film Festival this fall.
