In an interview with Esquire, actress and 'Captain America' leading lady Hayley Atwell was asked what was next on her list of upcoming projects, to which she responded, "possibly a Jimi Hendrix biopic -- an independent film with Andre 3000 from OutKast playing Jimi Hendrix." "But I don't know, really. The Atwell team is like, Let's just wait and see...," Atwell added.
Andre has clearly been influenced by the late rocker's flamboyant style and we think the physical resemblance between the two is pretty spot on. The rapper/actor admitted earlier in the 2000s that he had high hopes for playing Jimi in a flick, but hit a bump in the road when the Hendrix estate refused to allow the rock legend's music to be featured on screen.
Well, according to Ms. Atwell, plans for a biopic are on! As for Derulo's alleged offer and pass on the role, he told MTV-UK that new album 'Future History' is his "main focus right now. I really wanted to make sure it gets the exposure it deserves." "After this album, I will dive full-throttle into movies for a while. I will ultimately take a break from music," he added.
Who do you think would make a better Hendrix? Andre or Derulo?
