Pop Up Video has revealed that Green Day front-man Billie Joe Armstrong would like Robert Pattinson to play the lead in American Idiot – should it hit the big screen.
The Pop Up Video for Green Day’s 21 Guns stated that Hollywood is trying to turn the hit musical into a movie, and that Rob would be Billie Joe’s first choice to take on the lead role.
A quote from a Spinner.com article in 2009 has now resurfaced.
“I’m gonna say maybe that kid in Twilight. … He’s a good actor. There’s still more to come with that kid.”
Do you think Rob would make a good lead? Leave us a comment.
