Here Is Your First Look At Andre 3000 As Jimi Hendrix In ‘All Is By My Side’

Jimi Hendrix

After what feels like a year of promotion, the first image of OutKast member Andre Benjamin, AKA Andre 3000, as legendary musician Jimi Hendrix for the upcoming All Is By My Side has surfaced online.

Debuting on the official website of the Toronto International Film Festival, which will host the film’s world premiere later this year, the first image of Andre 3000 as Jimi is one that is sure to cause a couple double takes. You see the OutKast member mid-performance, with stage lights cutting through his hair and a look of satisfaction on his face. It’s not the clearest photo, but I’ll be damn if it does not look like the spitting image of Hendrix. Click through the “Read More” link below to see for yourself.

A synopsis released along with the image reads: “Jimmy James, an unknown backup guitarist, left New York City for London, England in 1966. A year later he returned — as Jimi Hendrix. All Is By My Side brings authenticity and poignancy to the story of the man behind the legend, and of the people who loved and inspired him.”

There is no release information for All Is By My Side outside of Toronto International Film Festival, but if it’s as good as we hope there will no doubt be a plethora of information in the days following the premiere. For now, comment below and let us know your thoughts on Andre 3K’s transformation.
