Rock stars and movies seem to go hand in hand these days actors like Jared Leto are in bands, Ozzy makes a cameo in Ghostbusters – now Green Day front-man, Billie Joe Armstrong, has been cast in his first lead role in quirky comedy ‘Ordinary World’.
Armstrong plays ‘Perry’, whose punk-rock band are on ‘hiatus’ and he has to ajust to everyday life. His wife (played by Selma Blair) and daughter forget his 40th, so Perry’s brother throws him a big rock n roll party and his punk past catches up on him.
Billie Joe is no stranger to the silver screen having starred in The Simpsons Movie and This Is 40.
