Listen to Green Day on iHeartRadio

The guys in Green Day have been on the big screen a few times this year  in documentaries, but now frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is ready to show off his  acting talent. 

He's set to play the boyfriend of "Gossip Girl's" Leighton Meester in  the upcoming indie drama "Like Sunday, Like Rain."  The movie is being  directed by "Ray Donovan" actor Frank Whaley, and also stars Debra  Messing. 

The film tells the story of a struggling musician - played by Meester -  who suddenly becomes the guardian of a 12-year-old music prodigy.  

Filming is under way now in New York, although "Like Sunday, Like Rain"  doesn't have an official release date just  yet. 

Meanwhile, one of Armstrong and Green Day's new  documentaries, "Broadway Idiot," is set to be part of this year's CBGB Film  Festival.  The event starts October 8th in New York City, while "Broadway  Idiot" will play on October 10th.  The behind-the-scenes look at the  Broadway musical version of the band's "American Idiot" album will also be  released on DVD on November 12th.
