Singer steps into role of St Jimmy for eight Broadway performances

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is set to join the cast of the Broadway musical based on their album ‘American Idiot’.

The singer is to take up the role of persuasive drug dealer St Jimmy for eight performances, from Tuesday (September 28) through to October 3.

Armstrong will temporarily replace actor Tony Vincent, who is on leave until October 12 following a personal family matter, reports the Associated Press.

The singer will be making his Broadway debut at the St James Theatre.

The show follows an anti-hero who flees a deadening suburbia and descends into sex, drugs and fierce guitar playing in his quest to find himself in the big city.
