Jimi Hendrix + Andre 3000 – Rock Star Look-Alikes / Central Press, Getty Images

If there were a book of A-listers who wanted to play Jimi Hendrix in the new biopic, surely it’d be a lengthy one. But how many can actually pull it off? Well, in our opinion, Andre 3000 would be at the top of that list. Just look at the picture. Can you argue with us? As of right now he’s got the look down at least.

Apparently, Andre — one half of the hip-hop group Outkast — has been saying he’d love to play the ’70s rocker ever since back in 2004. Well, congrats, just eight years later that dream came true. Production on the film started this June — You can read all about it here.

There’s no doubt that Andre 3000 is one of the smoothest guys we’ve ever see, but can he pull of Jimi’s ridiculously fast and distinct guitar riffs? Most likely not, but that’s what special effects are for, right?
