Andre 3000 – Rappers Who Became Movie Stars

Andre Benjamin has always been a restless artist, venturing into fashion, and of course acting, as ways of exploring his seemingly bottomless creativity. His early roles were mostly supporting turns, silly roles like those in ‘Hollywood Homicide’ and ‘Be Cool,’ but after John Singleton cast him in ‘Four Brothers,’ he developed a reputation for having a quiet sort of authority, and a vulnerability, which served his future projects well. Without having seen his turn as Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming ‘All Is By My Side,’ we can’t yet declare him a master thespian, but between ‘Idlewild’ and ‘Semi-Pro,’ both of which he really had to carry, he’s earned the benefit of the doubt.
