Billie Joe Armstrong Makes American Idiot Even More Biographical

I mentioned last week that if you’re lucky you can catch Billie Joe Armstrong stopping by American Idiot. But now for a week you are guaranteed to see him because he’s going to be IN THE SHOW. (Hint: this is unusual and a very big deal.)

BJA will be making his Broadway debut in the role of St. Jimmy, the campy goth heroine dealer who the main character, Johnny, bumps into (sort of… you’ll have to see the show to know what I mean by that) during his journey in the city. He is performing Tuesday, Sept. 28 – Sunday, October 3.

Obviously Armstrong knows the words because he kind of wrote them, but can he act the part? I personally think he’ll be awesome, although the two people I’ve seen in the role (Tony Vincent and his understudy Joshua Kobak) have been mind-blowingly fantastic, and to be honest, downright creepy.
