Billie Joe Armstrong is set to star in a film opposite Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester. As reported by Deadline.com , the Green Day frontman will portray the boyfriend of Meester’s character in Like Sunday, Like Rain, an indie drama written and directed by Frank Whaley.
Meester plays a struggling musician who becomes the guardian of a 12-year-old music prodigy. Also starring in the movie is Will and Grace actress Debra Messing, who appears as the child’s mother. Armstrong has previously appeared as himself in several films—including Riding in Cars with Boys and This Is 40—but Like Sunday, Like Rain marks his first major acting role. Filming is currently underway in New York City.
