Although there’s been a wave of controversy surrounding his role, André 3000 is moving forward with his portrayal of Jimi Hendrix in an upcoming biopic. André 3000, who was criticized along with film director John Ridley by the electric guitarist’s estate, was spotted filming in Ireland this weekend looking stunning similar to Hendrix.
Dressed in a robe, open shirt and red bell-bottom pants, André 3000 tried to shun photographers eager to get a first glance at his rockstar transformation. The OutKast rapper-actor will continue to film in Ireland for the biopic titled All Is By My Side documenting Hendrix’s time in England as he created his first album.
