Wake me up when tomorrow comes: Green Day rocker Billie Joe Armstrong is serious about his acting career. He’s following Justin Timberlake from the radio to the big screen. BJ has already finished his first film, “Like Sunday Like Rain” directed by our old Naked Angels pal Frank Whaley.
Now I’m told he’s signed to play a rocker (duh) in Lee Kirk’s “Geezer,” a comedy about an aging rocker whose family forgets his 40th birthday. Sounds like fun. Someone’s giving Billie Joe good advice. Both movies are combining music and acting. Plus, they’re indie enough to give him cred.
Soon enough we may see Billie Joe at the Indie Spirit Awards. Far from an American Idiot, he’s quite smart and talented. Can’t wait to see where this will lead,
