Billie Joe Armstrong Scores An Acting Job

Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong leads an all-star cast in a candid and heart-warming comedy, ORDINARY WORLD released on DVD and Digital Download on 17 October via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Former punk rocker Perry (Armstrong) is ten years into his band’s “indefinite hiatus” and struggling with life in the real world. When Perry’s attorney wife Karen (Selma Blair, Anger Management, Cruel Intentions) and his precocious young daughter forget his 40th birthday, Perry’s brother takes pity on him and gives him the money to throw a rock star blowout party at a swanky New York hotel. At the party, Perry’s punk past clashes hilariously with his grown-up reality as he encounters crazy former bandmates, including best pal Gary (Fred Armisen, Saturday Night Live, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy), and an old-flame-turned-manager (Judy Greer, Jurassic World, Ant-Man).

ORDINARY WORLD premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year to widespread praise and features four original new songs written by Billie Joe Armstrong; ‘The Devil’s Kind’, ‘Body Bag’, ‘Fever Blister’ and ‘Ordinary World’, the latter of which is on Green Day’s new album Revolution Radio out via Warner Bros on 7 October.

Five-time Grammy-winning band Green Day has sold over 85 million records worldwide to date and will be touring the UK and Europe in 2017.

Ordinary World is released on DVD and Digital Download on Monday 17 October.
