    According to the casting call for the first two episodes of this new season, which is premiering in the spring of 2012, Billie Joe will be playing "[JOHN] (Male, 45) He is a badass, has a tattoo that says 'No Regrets' on his hand, and is a drug user addicted to Oxycontin who meets Jackie one night. He is chasing after the ultimate high. He has kids and a wife who don't talk to him anymore." sounds like Billie Joe is considering playing St Jimmy in the upcoming Universal Pictures and Playtone "American Idiot" movie. He said he was interested but hadn't said yes yet. But I mean…this character on Nurse Jackie is a badass druggie? And St Jimmy is a badass drug dealer. And it sounds like he's using a role on the small screen to prepare himself for a role on the big screen. Hm…

    Oh and the "American Idiot" feature film is slated for release in 2013. It's already in pre-production, probably going to film this coming year (2012). So he's starting to get ready it sounds like. I could be WAY wrong, but it seems way too coincidental to me…I HOPE I'm right. I saw him perform as the character on Broadway 4 times. He honestly blew me away each time. He was way more captivating than any of the other actors, and I had seen the show multiple times without him before that, and thought it was mesmerizing enough with just the normal cast. He really has quite the stage presence, and the ability to express emotions with his face really damn well. I can't picture anyone else playing St Jimmy in the movie. I know he doesn't fit the age range for the role, but I mean…he almost never looks his age anyways, so it shouldn't be an issue. And they'd make so much more money if he was in it. More people would go see it, that's for sure…whether or not he's up for it though is another thing…
