André 3000 Wants Kevin Hart to Play Big Boi in Outkast Biopic
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Outkast’s André 3000 chats about playing Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming Jimi: All is By My Side. During the course of the conversation he teases an Outkast biopic, and how he’d like a certain Philly comedian to play his sidekick Big Boi.
Rapper André Benjamin worked obsessively on his startling portrayal of Jimi Hendrix in the new film Jimi: All Is By My Side, and he already has ideas about a potential biopic for his group Outkast. “It would be great to make an Outkast movie right now, but instead of really serious, make it a full comedy — like Kevin Hart would play Big Boi,” he said of his rapping partner last night. And as himself? “We should cast somebody stupid — like Leonardo [DiCaprio].”
