André 3000 (or as he’s known when acting, AndréBenjamin) always seemed like the perfect choice to portray legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix in the biopic we always knew was coming, “All Is by My Side.” He passionately campaigned for the film to get made, and there’s at least a resemblance between Hendrix and the Outkast member.
With production finally underway in Ireland, we now don’t have to rely on our imagination to picture Benjamin as Hendrix anymore. New paparazzi photos appeared online on Tuesday (May 29) showing Benjamin in full Hendrix regalia with an outfit straight out of 1966 and an afro to match. In his full costume, Benjamin’s resemblance to Hendrix is nothing short of striking.
Benjamin did his best to cover his face with his hands and hide his wardrobe with a robe, but photogs managed to capture almost every inch of the full costume.
