Hot Tip: There are 4 ads on LTR now that auto-play sometimes (They don’t always show) you CAN Mute them & once you do, they should stay muted. We’ve tested on like 4 computers with 3 different browsers. The ads are square(ish) and there are two in the side and 2 down all the way at the bottom on the site! Sorry for the 10 second inconvenience until the muting starts… our site expenses have gone up so we had to get some new ads!
I am very disturbed at the idea of you being considered for the starring role in the made for film version of American Idiot. Don’t get me wrong, I love Twilight, why else would I be here? Something I ‘crazy fan’ over even more than Twilight stuff are all things Green day. I’m pretty certain that Billie Joe Armstrong was being sarcastic when he said “maybe that kid in Twilight. He’s a good actor.” could fill the starring role in the movie adaptation of American Idiot. Kid? Good actor? Wouldn’t that be Taylor Lautner anyway? I’m quite certain that we have plenty of idiots right here in America to choose from for the role. We, lit-trally don’t need to cross the pond. My best friend is a Brit and everytime she says lit-trally, I smile, thinking of LTT. (Thanks for that, by the way.)
If you’re not familiar, Green Day released the Album American Idiot in 2004. It’s filled with chart toppers but the songs are also telling a story. The main character is a guitar playing slacker, who is American, and goes in search of something better. I realize this wouldn’t be much of a stretch for you, Rob, but it just can’t happen. Knowing that Green Day fans are hardcore crazy, I would seriously doubt they (we)(me) would let this happen without trying to be heard. The only thing is that I’m not sure how many Green day fans even know who Rob P. is?
I won’t be surprised if Billie Joe gets on Twitter and tells the masses to relax. He did that recently regarding what his role would be in the movie. I was fortunate enough to see the broadway show while Billie Joe played a supporting character…the best character….St. Jimmy. He is the alter ego of the main character ( Jesus of Suburbia), he loves drugs, sex and all things reckless. I hope Billie Joe does reprise the role for the movie, but I can’t by any stretch of my imagination think that you, Rob, should be involved at all. Sorry.
Thanks for listening,
Thanks Lisa! I don’t have much of an opinion on this one since I’m not a Green Day, fan, but I’ll take your word for it! I do, however, always enjoy the conversation of “What should Rob do next.” And I have to agree that this would NOT be the smartest move. Rob needs to steer CLEAR of controversial roles, even if the controversy is from the crazy fans. My hope is that he takes an awesome supporting role to a big shot like … Matt (Damon), Leo, Brad, Ryan (yes Gosling. I’d DIE. Both of them? On screen at the SAME TIME?) I think before he’s taken seriously by the majority of Hollywood, he needs to work with respected Hollywood stars (which he IS doing with Cosmopolis) but as a supporting cast member.
So.. what do YOU think!? What type of role should Rob play next?
