The Examiner has an article on a recent interview that Spinner.com had with Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong discussing the band's new CD being released May 15th. In the interview, Billie Joe compliments Rob.
Who would you want to play Christian and Gloria if this were given a big screen adaptation?
The girl that played in ‘Juno’ [Ellen Page] — I think she could be Gloria. The song ‘East Jesus Nowhere’ — I got the title from ‘Juno.’ There was that one part where the mother goes, “Why are you driving out in East Jesus Nowhere to go hang out with that couple.” And it was like, “Oh my god, I’ve heard of Bumf— Egypt, but East Jesus Nowhere? That’s amazing.”
And Christian, I’m gonna say maybe that kid in ‘Twilight’ [Robert Pattinson]. He’s a good actor. There’s still more to come with that kid.
If you ask this girl, who currently has two ticket stubs from Green Day concerts and is considering their new CD release date as an early birthday present, Billie Joe's comment is an extreme honor. In case you are a bit confused, you may remember that Green Day's last CD was a rock opera entitled "American Idiot". While the songs were released to radio as singles, the entire album flowed together as the story of the character St. Jimmy.
I think it will be really interesting to hear the story of the new characters and see if we can also picture Rob as Christian.
