This will be Armstrong’s second film
Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong has been cast in the upcoming independent film, Like Sunday, Like Rain.
The film is currently being shot in New York City, the same place where Armstrong starred in his Broadway role as St. Jimmy in American Idiot: The Musical. No release date has been confirmed yet for the film.
Armstrong will be playing the role of boyfriend Dennis to Leighton Meester’s character, Eleanor. The plot consists of Meester’s character, a struggling musician, having to care for a child prodigy for the summer. This is not Armstrong’s debut to acting as he appeared in 2012’s This Is 40 and in one episode of TV’s Nurse Jackie.
