Billie Joe Armstrong to Director Lee Kirk On His New Film ‘Ordinary World’: I Hope I Don’t Ruin Your Movie Aired October 14, 2016

The lead singer of Green Day Billie Joe Armstrong stopped by to talk about his new album “Revolution Radio” which Rach calls a “beautiful work of art” -- and his new movie.

Starring alongside Judy Greer, Chris Messina and Selma Blair, Armstrong plays a ‘90s rock ‘n roll enthusiast who gives up on his dream of being a star on his 40th birthday in the new Lee Kirk film “Ordinary World,” which he also wrote four songs for! .

“It’s a really sweet, heartfelt movie. I’m really proud of it,” he says. When he was approached by director Lee Kirk to do the film, he said it all happened so fast. “I read through the script overnight and met up with him a few days later and said ‘I hope I don’t ruin your movie!” he jokes.

As if Armstrong wasn’t busy enough, he’s also working on a project he’s passionate about called Project Chimps which was created by scientists, government officials, and regular people who agree that it’s no longer necessary to use chimpanzees in medical research, and provides lifetime sanctuary care in Georgia for hundreds of chimps who’ve been in cages their entire lives (some even 40 years!).

His “Revolution Radio” show will be touring through 2017 and it’s one you don’t want to miss! “It’s always about breaking down the barrier between us and the audience, where everybody is united together,” says Armstrong.
