It seems that everyone wants to be an actor these days, and punk rocker Billie Joe Armstrong is no exception. The Green Day frontman will step into his first lead role opposite "Gossip Girl'" star Leighton Meester in the indie film "Like Sunday, Like Rain."

In this film from actor/director Frank Whaley ("Pulp Fiction," "Ray Donovan"), Meester plays a struggling musician who becomes the guardian of a 12-year-old music prodigy one summer. Armstrong is set to play Meester's boyfriend in the film, which has already begun production in New York.

Although his first leading role, Armstrong is no stranger to the big screen. He appeared in Penny Marshall's "Riding in Cars with Boys" as well as Judd Apatow's "This is 40." This Christmas, he can also be seen in "Anchorman: The Legend Continues."

Given his short track record, what do you think? Will Armstrong prove a strong lead role in this film? Would you like to see more of Armstrong on the big screen?

    He can't 'pull off' singing, much less acting.

    Are those tattooed eyeliners? Or did somebody finally punch his lights out?

    Don't got to be a jerk. And no, no one punch his lights out. If they did, they would have a whole lot of Green Day fans going after him. And by the way, his eyeliner is amazing.

    I'm sure there are plenty of fan-girls who will see the movie just because Billie Joe is in it. Regardless, I think his acting will be about average, which is consistent with his previous work. Most people won't expect much from an indie film anyway.

    If he is as dedicated with the role as he is his music, then I'm sure he will have no problem!
