Billie Joe Armstrong has dabbled in acting in the past, but he's just scored his first major role in a movie.
The Green Day frontman has been cast in an indie drama titled Like Sunday, Like Rain , according to Deadline.com . He'll play the boyfriend of former Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester 's character -- a struggling musician who becomes the guardian of a 12-year-old music prodigy.
Former Will & Grace actress Debra Messing will also star in the movie, which will be directed by Ray Donovan actor Frank Whaley .
Armstrong and his band mates made an animated cameo in the 2007 Simpsons Movie . Last year, Billie Joe had a role in an episode of the Showtime series Nurse Jackie .
