Robert Pattinson: First Choice for Green Day Movie Musical?

Robert Pattinson shows off his scruffy full beard as he walks through LAX Airport on Friday (October 21) in Los Angeles.

Last month, the 25-year-old British actor was spotted walking through Toronto’s airport sporting the same beard!

In an episode of VH1′s Popup Video, while playing a Green Day song, a speculative bubble popped up saying Robert was first choice for the band’s large screen adaptation of American Idiot, their Broadway musical, MTV reports.

“Hollywood is trying to turn it into a movie … Billie Joe has said that his first choice to play the main character: Robert Pattinson,” the bubble read.

The film is tentatively set for a 2013 release date.

WOULD YOU WATCH Robert Pattinson in the Green Day movie musical, American Idiot?

FYI: Robert is wearing Current/Elliott jeans.

    That news about American Idiot is old news, something Billie said years ago, I think even before the show made it to Broadway. He doesn’t seem to have nearly enough range in his voice from what I’ve heard of him singing to play Johnny anyway. They really should just let Johnny Gallagher play the role.
