Could It Be? Will Andre 3000 Be Playing Jimi Hendrix On The Big Screen??

It just wouldn’t be right any other way…

Andre 3000 just got a promotional boost for his next act from a very unlikely source: “Captain America” leading lady Hayley Atwell.

The up-and-coming actress, who will star opposite Chris Evans in the summer blockbuster, told Esquire that her next project will be “possibly a Jimi Hendrix biopic” with the rapper – real name Andre Benjamin – playing the title role.

This is good news for Benjamin, who has been vocally gunning for the project since 2004, seemingly to no avail.

In an interview with the Daily News seven years ago, the OutKast rapper said he was excited about portraying the two sides of Hendrix’s persona onscreen, though no project ever materialized.

“Jimi was wild onstage,” he said. “Offstage, he was really calm.”

The film never came to be, however.

This would be EPIC if it goes down. Who else in the world other than Andre could possibly play someone as eclectic and creative as Jimi Hendrix? We really hope this goes down, and for the big wigs in Hollyweird it’s definitely a draw to both the black and white crowds.

Hate it or love it?!?
