The first image has surfaced online from writer/director John Ridley’s upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side. The film stars André Benjamin as Hendrix and chronicles the pre-fame career of the singer, songwriter and guitar icon.
I can’t think of another actor that would be a better suited to play Hendrix than Andre 3000, he’s got the perfect mix of musical skill and acting chops. Hopefully, the film lives up to its potential. The film premieres at TIFF later this year.
The supporting cast includes Imogen Poots, Hayley Atwell, Ruth Negga and Adrian Leste
