Watch Billie Joe Armstrong’s awkward encounter with Joan Jett in ‘Ordinary World’ film clip

Green Day frontman’s new movie will be out on October 17

A new clip has been unveiled from Ordinary World, which stars Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in his first major film role.

Described as “a candid and heart-warming comedy”, Armstrong stars as former punk rocker Perry, who is struggling to adapt to real life ten years into his band’s “indefinite hiatus”.

After his 40th birthday is forgotten by his wife Karen (played by Selma Blair) and his daughter, Perry’s brother takes pity on him and helps fund a wild party at a lavish New York City hotel. It is at the party where Perry’s past meets his grown-up present, encountering his old bandmate Gary (played by Fred Armisen) and an old-flame-turned-manager (played by Judy Greer).

This new clip sees Armstrong’s character Perry involved in an awkward encounter with Joan Jett. Watch below, via Rolling Stone.

Last year saw Armstrong joined onstage by Jett at a solo gig.

Ordinary World features four new original songs written by Armstrong, including the title track, which will also appear on the tracklisting of Green Day’s new studio album, ‘Revolution Radio’.

The film was premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival back in April. It will be released on DVD and as a digital download on October 17. Pre-order here.
