Rocker Lenny Kravitz is set to portray the late Jimi Hendrix, the most famous guitarist in rock history, in a biobic according to Roger Friedman of FOXNews.com.
Sources tell Friedman that Kravitz has secured the dramatic rights to Hendrix’s music through his estate, and that his plan is to make his acting debut with the independent film.
"Kravitz is a natural to play Hendrix," Friedman observed siting his looks and musical ability. He may have inheriting the acting gene from his mother, the late Roxie Roker, was a star of "The Jeffersons" on TV in the 1970s.
Lee Daniels, who directed the forthcoming "Shadowboxer" and produced "Monster’s Ball," is said to be the producer/director.
