Jimi Hendrix needs no introduction, and a new clip uploaded to YouTube gives us a quick glance at the upcoming biopic “All Is By My Side.”
Played by Outkast rapper Andre 3000, the clip is just one minute long with Jimi, err, Andre performing a scene with Imogen Poots who plays as Linda Keith.
Andre 3000 is currently a number one trending topic on Facebook, and here’s just a few reactions from Twitter:
So the new clip of Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix is absolute gold. He looks so good as him, great casting. Should have been him or Jamie Foxx
