The first images of Outkast member Andre Benjamin (aka Andre 3000) as Jimi Hendrix have surfaced online. He’s playing the legendary guitarist in a biopic called All Is By My Side, which is currently filming in Dublin. The actor certainly has the physical resemblance down, but we don’t yet know if his acting ability is up to snuff. The film also stars Imogen Poots and Hayley Atwell, and the set photos here also include a brief shot of the latter. John Ridley wrote the script and is directing the pic, which will utilize interviews with the musician and archival footage of Hendrix to anchor the film’s structure.
