Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is going Hollywood. He's signed on to star in a music-themed movie alongside Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester.
Billie Joe, who gave acting a whirl in a stint in his own Broadway musical American Idiot, is taking on a more dramatic role in Like Sunday, Like Rain, a flick about a musician who becomes the guardian of a troubled teen girl. In a twist, Meester is the musician, and Billie Joe plays her boyfriend.
Former Will and Grace star Debra Messing rounds out the cast of the drama, which will be filmed in New York City this fall.
