Leonardo DiCaprio As Jimi Hendrix? Keeping Track Of The Many Music Biopics.

By / 12.10.13

Leonardo DiCaprio as Jimi Hendrix? That’s preposterous, though not as insane as Amy Adams as James Brown. Wait. That doesn’t make sense. There are A LOT of music biopics currently in development (I blame CBGB, not because anyone was inspired by that dump but because it’s the cause of everything awful), so to help you guys out, I put together a guide to 10 of the biggest. Mercury, Simone, Sinatra, as played by Zoe Saldana, obviously.

The role of Freddie Mercury…

…will be played by Ben Whishaw.

The role of Jimi Hendrix…

…will be played Andre 3000.

The role of Janis Joplin…

…will be played by Amy Adams.

The role of Marvin Gaye…

…will be played by Jesse L. Martin.

The role of Nina Simone…

…will be played by Zoe Saldana.

The role of James Brown…

…will be played by Chadwick Boseman.

The role of Elton John…

..will be played by Tom Hardy.

The role of Frank Sinatra…

…will be played by Leonardo DiCaprio (or so director Martin Scorsese hopes).
