Who Will Make a Better Jimi Hendrix: Anthony Mackie or Andre 3000?

By Jordan Smith, Hollywood Staff

We've somehow suffered 40 long years without a single big screen biopic chronicling the life of Jimi Hendrix, so it's only natural that the universe has decided to reward us with two. That's right, the life of the legendary guitar virtuoso is going to be chronicled in two very different films with very different actors in the central role. The first, All Is by My Side, features Outkast's Andre 3000 as Hendrix, while the other, simply titled Jimi, has just cast actor Anthony Mackie as the tragic artist. While both Anthony Mackie and Andre 3000 are both very talented individuals who each bring something unique to the table, we wonder which actor can bring more justice to the role. We've decided to compare the two performers over several categories to decide who will play the definitive version of Hendrix.
