Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong has never shied away from the acting scene. From guest appearances on Nurse Jackie to roles in This Is 40 and Like Sunday, Like Rain to a stint in American Idiot on Broadway, the frontman has displayed his many awesome talents over the years.
October 14 marks an important day in Armstrong's career: the release of his first lead role on the silver screen.
Ordinary World, which stars Armstrong as an aging punk rocker settling into famly life, originally debuted as Geezer at Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. However, as posted on Green Day's socials, Geezer is now Ordinary World and will release October 14 under Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group (via Deadline).
October 14 will be Ordinary World's “day-and-date” release, which, according to Loudwire, means that the film will hit theaters and retailers on the same day.
Two-thirds of Green Day played a surprise show at Geezer's Tribeca premiere, featuring Joan Jett (watch footage from that here). One of the songs they played, “Ordinary World,” not only stole the movie's title—but is also featured as the last track on Green Day's forthcoming album Revolution Radio.

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong stars in a new film called Ordinary World, set to be released in the US in October. According to Deadline, Armstrong plays the part of Perry, “an aging former punk rocker who’s now a married father of two” The synopsis continues: “[Perry] leads a sedate life in Queens until his brother (Chris Messina) gives him money to throw a huge 40th birthday rockstar bash in a fancy Manhattan hotel — a chance to get it out of his system. But Perry’s punk past clashes with his middle-age reality.” The film, which first premiered at Tribeca in April, also stars Judy Greer, Selma Blair, Dallas Roberts, Fred Armisen, Brian Baumgartner and Kevin Corrigan.
