André 3000 has joined the upcoming Jason Segel-directed anthology series Dispatches from Elsewhere, in addition to playing his flute in airports and while walking down the sidewalk in Philadelphia. 

According to AJCthe 10-episode series was created by and will star Segel, best known for his recurring role on How I Met Your Mother and films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Alethea Jones of Queen America will executive produce the series, and is expected to direct a number of episodes in addition to Segel. 

The series will be centered around "a group of ordinary people who stumble upon a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life." They will come to find that the mystery winds far deeper than they ever imagined. André has made several film and television appearances over the years, in projects like FamiliesThe ShieldSemi-ProFour Brothers, in addition to portraying Jimi Hendrix in the film All Is By My Side.

According to AV Club, the show has started filming in Philadelphia, which likely explains why André 3000 has been spotted walking down the city's sidewalks playing his double flute
