Andre 3000 is going rock.
The hip-hop star has been cast to play Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming biopic All Is by My Side, according to the Irish Film and Television Network.
In about three weeks the movie reportedly will begin shooting in Ireland, where IFTN says the project is currently in preproduction.
The long-awaited film, written and directed by John Ridley (Three Kings) reportedly tracks Jimi’s career, going back to the time he spent in England in 1966 and 1967 before the release of his debut album Are You Experienced.
