Outkast’s André 3000 is set to play psychedelic legend Jimi Hendric in the upcoming biopic All Is By My Side, and now fans can check out their first glimpse of the afro’d rapper-turned-rocker. NME discovered the image (which is conveniently located above) on the Toronto International Film Festival website, along with a newly unveiled synopsis of the project.
“Jimmy James, an unknown backup guitarist, left New York City for London, England in 1966,” the statement reads. “A year later he returned — as Jimi Hendrix.”
The film, which was written and directed by John Ridley, is premiering at the Festival in September.
