3 Stacks attempts to kiss the sky.

The announcement was made back in 2012 and we’ve finally got a peek at the real deal –André Benjamin “3 Stacks” aka André 3000 aka one-half of Outkast — as rock god Jimi Hendrix. The biopic on the rock legend, All Is By My Side, makes its American premiere at this year’s SXSW which kicks off this week in Austin, Texas. Check out the video up top and see if Mr. Stacks makes a convincing Hendrix or not.

Fans of the silver screen should note that the film is directed by John Ridley and stars Imogen Poots (Jimi’s lady friend in this clip) Hayley Atwell, Burn Gorman, and Ashley Charles as some of 3000’s more recognizable cast mates.

    Sucks that none of Jimi’s music will be in this.

  • Guess they wanted to be original, since Andre 3000 is a musician himself.

    Not Hayley Atwell, she’s the woman in Captain America. This woman looks like she was the girl in 28 Weeks Later.

    No, they’re not using it because Jimi’s estate wouldn’t give them permission. That’s why this has been in development for 6+ years

  • Mass Appeal

    You’re right. It’s Imogen Poots. Thanks!
