Green Day wants Robert Pattinson


From spinner.com:

If 1994's 'Dookie' elevated Green Day from the Bay Area to national punk kings, 'American Idiot' -- the band's 2004 rock opera which chronicled the adventures of fictional character St. Jimmy -- cemented the trio's status as a world-class rock band. This time 'round, the band is doubling down on ambition.

Green Day's highly-anticipated new album, '21st Century Breakdown,' produced by Butch Vig, is as grand as it is adventurous, featuring 18 songs broken up into three chapters -- 'Heroes and Cons,' 'Charlatans and Saints' and 'Horseshoes and Handgrenades' -- and two new protagonists: Christian and Gloria.

In a wide-ranging, hour-long conversation, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong talked with Spinner about the new album, what he thinks of right-wing conservatives, his love for Robert Pattinson and the two things he'll never, ever do.

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.

"There's still more to come with that kid"

Yes there is you ain't seen nothing yet !!! ;-)

Kate said...

Ooh forgot to say LOVE Green day ;-)

Diane said...

Damn straight, BJ! (Oooh that sounds so naughty. All I can think of when I see the letters "BJ" is Rob's bubble jacket. Hot!)

Kelli said...

LOVE Green Day!!! LOVE Rob!!! toether that would just be amazing.

Laura said...

Awww, go Billie Joe! Show that RPattz love!

May said...

Billy, Billy, ain`t that the truth...:)God, it`s so nice when other ppl see in Rob what we saw ages ago. :D

Maryann said...

That is VERY cool! Green Day is cool, I love their song American Idiot :-D.

thirtysomething said...

wow... rob getting props from greenday...niiiice. he would probably actually appreciate that.

and i looooooooove the new banner...makes me dream of tie guy *sigh*

tinababy1 said...

Further proof that Billie Joe Armstron is a genius

Already have "Know your Enemy" as my ringtone

Brilliance recognizes brilliance

Kristen said...

u bet there's more to come!

I love the new banner!!! how gorgeous is he in that shirt and tie!!! I just wanna grab it and pull him to me...*pants*

Anna said...

Rob with black hair... I like :)

Who am I kidding, he could be rocking Lady Gaga's hair bowtie and I'd still like, lol

Tie Guy Rob is win.

Ash7586 said...

Hell yeah. They should also sing with him. :)

Shani said...

I love Green Day and have been missing them. Wow, Billie sees exactly what we see. That is so real...I'm a little bit blown away. Who would have thought that he would even care about Rob. That right there shows Rob's true mass appeal.

I hope Rob hears about it. Billie would be a great help for him music wise. Green Day has won how many Grammys? There are always odd pairings when doing collaborations. He could help write some songs and finally push Rob to do a CD. We may be able to see Rob at the Grammys after all. I mean you never know what could happen. It only takes the right person to come across your path.

Divinesally said...

TS, the banner does remind me of tie guy, I told Goz this morning I thought so. lol

LB, aww rob with a hairbowtie. that would be cute. but no, black hair Rob is WAYYYY hotter. lol Oh yes. Oh yes. He's a little more meat in that photo. So hot.

BJ is awesome! Ellen and Rob would make a cool duo for those roles. Rob will get a kick of that.

Lilly said...

Green Day wants Rob? Tell them to get in line.

;)

I would love to see an Ellen Page-Rob Pattinson pairing on screen!

Mechevpao said...

Ellen Page-Rob Pattinson would be amazing big screen paring, hopefully some producer with a good screenplay would take note on that advice =)
I´m so happy of this Rob mention and compliment, coming from un of the best and most original musician, amazing that an artist like him took notice of Rob and his acting ability from twilight.

Jaime said...

ugh not a fan of green day...I can't stand it when punk rock bands try to make music about politics! They are just a bunch of whiny men in mascara that really have no idea what they are talking about!!

Enjoy!

Divinesally said...

I like the dudes in green day but the whole image is a bit off putting for me. I thought the drummer was hot at one point.

Lilly said...

I'd really hate it if Rob went political.

Suz said...

American Idiot (IMO) is a great piece of literature showcasing the state of this (USA) country during some of the it's bleakest, most frightening hours...

The song "The Saints Are Coming with U2

Sheer Cinematic Genius!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seGhTWE98DU

tinababy1 said...

Well said Suz

tinababy1 said...

Uh Suz - will the steaks actually be ON you??? hee hee

Suz said...

sure why not Tina.. .. and always

"wit"

How are you gorgeous?

It's happy hour and I am shaking the (very) Dirty Robtini's

xxx

tinababy1 said...

Sounds yummy, perfect for the end of a long week

Divinesally said...

Ok Suz, agreed. American Idiot was the shizz. That one song is really good. The video w/ U2 and all the images makes the song better. But literature?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIEyurK7Ge4

What about this, Suz?

Suz said...

DS - I was referring to American Idiot as the literature..

The video as cinematic brilliance.

The video re: Hurricane Katrina relief (or fucking lack thereof)

xxx

Suz said...

Tina, do you want yours (him) shaken or stirred...

; )

tinababy1 said...

DS - you can't judge the concept of "21st century breakdown" solely on one song. Each song set the tone for another.

Divinesally said...

ahh, ok. that makes sense. ;)

tinababy1 said...

Suz - Shake it , baby, definitely shake it.

Divinesally said...

DS<<<<< really fudging thirsty.

tinababy1 said...

Suz - Have you ever tried that ANYDVD?

Suz said...

@Jaimie..

I personally THANK GOD for any celebrity who gets politically involved....

If they didn't... man we'd be fucked..

Think about a lot of the anti war music form the 60's -- and Woodstock!

Bono's work with Africa Debt Relief

Sir Bob Geldoff - Hunger Relief

Brad Pitt, Winton Marceles, Harry Connick, Jr. with their TIRELESS New Orleans housing relief efforts..

Elton John - Aids awareness and Cure

man I could go on and on... but I wont... ;)

Now getting back to Rob.. I'd personally LOVE to hear some of his political views..

Oh, and he is hot too!

xxx

Suz said...

yes Tina.. my videos work!

Using the free trial.. (21 days)
we burned a copy on the DVR now I have a copy that plays in Windows Media Player for eva!

DS.. what's you having to drink m'lady?

tinababy1 said...

Suz - Did you listen to City and Colour? Right now my fave song

Suz said...

oh yes Tina! Love s.s.
Thanks for sharing.

you must had a mad good public radio station in Montreal..

Perhaps even a World Cafe affiliate?

Suz said...

oopss *must have

Robtini's going straight to ma head...


"Yeah, I should eat something"

Divinesally said...

Great statement about world wide relief awareness. A lot of it went around in the 80s. Remember Live Aid?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AzIsSHJJq4

Now that was a historic event.

Divinesally said...

DH brought up some Guinness! yes! Damn, but should I mix the Robtini?

Suz said...

DS - Remember it??!

Dude, I volunteered for the event..

P H I L A D E L P H I A !

Was There! A truly magnificent day!

Anyone remember Hands Across America?

(whoa, I am old as fuck)

tinababy1 said...

Divinesally said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FvWFpU_uAw&feature=related

OMG that's so amazing! What did you do??? I'm 25 now, but then I was 1. Damn. sucks for me. I'm youtubing it. wow. tears. seriously.

Divinesally said...

tinababy1 said...

Suz - Don't call me "fuck"

tinababy1 said...

Hey Crazy, how was NYC?

Suz said...

We don't run as many NPR programming as we used to.. (I miss the celtic programs and "Click and Clack"

WXPN is the most successful member supported triple A format public radio station in the country.

Divinesally said...

Emmes said...

Yeah! Love those guys. Green Day literally got me through high school!!! I had all of Dookies song lyrics in my locker door as inspiration!

In fact me and my GF had a duck as a pet and his name was Billie Joe Anarchy Campos (Campos is like a super common last name in spanish...we were obviously being ironic)

tinababy1 said...

Like the Celtic and the Tappet Bros. but I find some of the announcers very dull. Fall into coma listening. DH went to Minnesota 2x to see Prairie Home Companion.
