  • Billie Joe Armstrong and Tre Cool of Green Day perform headling the main stage at Day 2 of the Leeds Festival at Bramham Park on August 24, 2013 in Leeds, England.
Billie Joe Armstrong will add a more prominent acting role to his dossier when he co-stars with Leighton Meester in the indie flick “Like Sunday, Like Rain.”

The movie is about a cute little kid and a struggling musician and her boyfriend, played by the East Bay native Armstrong, according to Rolling Stone magazine.

The Green Day frontman has had small roles in films before, like “Riding in Cars with Boys” and “This is 40,” but this could be his first foray into serious dialogue memorization. He’s probably more clearheaded now after completing rehab earlier this year, so break a leg, Billie.
