Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong joining the Broadway cast of American Idiot

Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong will rub metaphorical elbows with Dane Cook on Broadway early next year, joining the cast of sort-of-punk-rock musical American Idiot for a run of shows from Jan. 1 to Feb. 27. Armstrong briefly took over the role of St. Jimmy back in September, helping the show take in over $1 million in a single week. His return to the part is expected to help save Broadway from complete financial ruin once Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark kills everyone in an aerial harness-related genocide.

Here's some footage of Armstrong during his September debut.
