Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong to Star in Indie Film Opposite 'Gossip Girl''s Leighton Meester
Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong has landed his first film acting role, NME reports. The frontman will star opposite Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester in "Like Sunday, Like Rain," an upcoming indie drama from writer-director Frank Whaley, whose previous movies include fellow indie flicks "The Jimmy Show" and "New York City Serenade."

Meester will star as a struggling musician who becomes the guardian of a 12-year-old music prodigy and Armstrong will play her boyfriend. "Will and Grace"'s Debra Messing will appear as the mother of the gifted boy, a role taken by up-and-coming child actor Julian Shatkin. Filming is already already in New York City, Deadline reports.

Although "Like Sunday, Like Rain" is Armstrong's first proper big screen acting job, over the years the singer has appeared as himself in several movies including "Riding in Cars With Boys" and This Is 40. He is also set to make a cameo in Anchorman: the Legend Continues, which opens in cinemas this December (2013).
