Andre 3000 Locks Down Jimi Hendrix Role In Biopic

Aside from the occasional guest verse, things have been fairly quiet on the music front for Andre 3000 since his masterpiece, The Love Below, dropped several years back. And while we are all anxiously awaiting his return to the music scene, it appears as though the ice cold emcee is looking to hang up the microphone for now to put his SAG card to work. Rumors that Andre 3000 would be playing the role of Jimi Hendrix in a biopic have been circulating for some time now, but it looks like this project just might see the light of day as production in Ireland is set to begin on All Is By My Side by the month's end. Perhaps his role in the underwhelming Will Ferrell comedy Semi-Pro and those Gillette Razor commercials were simply a chance for 3 Stacks to build up his acting chops for this huge role. Could we be adding Academy Award winner to Mr. Benjamin's list of accomplishments? Probably not, but it will definitely be interesting to see what he does with the role. [H/T: PBB/IFTN]
