[lastfm]Green Day [/lastfm]frontman[lastfm] Billie Joe Armstrong [/lastfm]is set to join the cast of the Broadway musical based on the band’s 2004 album “American Idiot.” The singer is to take up the role of persuasive drug dealer St. Jimmy for eight performances from tomorrow through October 3rd. Armstrong will temporarily replace actor Tony Vincent, who is on leave until October 12th following a personal family matter.
If you’ve never seen Green Day live, Billie Joe has more energy than pretty much every other band out there, so it should be interesting to see him carry that momentum into a stage musical.
