Robert Pattinson Green Day Billie Joe Armstrong American Idiot

For the film adaptation of American Idiot, the Broadway musical inspired by Green Day's questions for American government, Billie Joe Armstrong has someone in mind to star…


Apparently the punk rocker thinks R-Patz's chops are groovy, saying:

I'm gonna say that kid in Twilight. He’s a good actor. There’s still more to come with that kid.

Oooh yes, we would love this. And we know we're not the only ones…

    sorry. Billie Joe said this almost two years ago, this doesnt apply to this movie. Also pointing out he never said "for the American Idioit movie"

    BILLIE JOE SAID THAT TWO YEARS AGO, WHEN ASKED WHO HE WOULD WANT TO PLAY THE CHARACTER "CHRISTIAN" IF THEY EVER MADE A MOVIE ADAPTATION OF "21st Century Breakdown"…NOT AMERICAN IDIOT!!! That quote has been edited, and taken out of context. I honestly don't get why people start spreading stuff like this…and for another thing, they need to cast someone who can not only act like the character (Rob could, he's good at playing tortured souls - which Johnny turns into), but they need to be able to sing. And sing rock songs. And Robert can sing, but he honestly can't articulate for his life. He mumbles like crazy. I can't even imagine it…I mean…just imagine him singing "Jesus of Suburbia" like that!! 9 minute long song, mumbled in front of the cameras. Either that, or they'd edit his voice to make it perfect and be fake, just to have him in the movie to get millions of fan-girls to see it. Which probably wouldn't be Green Day's decision if it happened, I can't imagine them doing that, even if Billie likes him as an actor. The singing needs to be decent…

    Re: BillieJoesEntourage – Co-sign :]
    I love the song 'Jesus of Suburbia', but if Robert Pattinson is going to mumble his way through that 9 minute song, than no thanks.
    Plus they should choose someone else who isn't so "popular" with the tweens. It'll make the production look bad. Just saying :/

    Re: Pretty Boys Are Forever – Most of Rob's fans are women in their 20s and 30s actually. It was mainly adults that went to see his movie Water for Elephants which was a box office hit making 117 million.

    Rob can sing, so this would be interesting and Rob would do a good job with this if he was interested.

    I will seriously not see the movie if he's starring in it. I think John Gallagher Jr. should play the Jesus of Suburbia since he created the role and did amazing.

    eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehm he's not even american!?

    besides he can't sing or act

  8. 8

    I don't think he'd be good at the role… He couldn't pull off a role as a rocker like K-Stew as Joan Jett in "The Runaways." Hell, even Dakota Fanning slayed as Cherie Currie, but Pattinson seems to be just blah…
