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?

I love him, but he looks awful with that awful beard. He is gorgeous underneath this horror though.

I love him!! I don’t want Greenday movie.

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.

Getting look alike brad bitt

smh….. and ppl call him sexy…. not a fan of zac efron but he loook 100times better than robert p. with bread on his face

Rob looks so fine, I love him!

I will never understand how girls find this guy handsome or even remotely sexy? i just cannot understand it he is just urgh horrible looking

he looks like my dad in those photos. and my dad is 51 so…

This is all over the net. Robert Pattinson’s escapades. Apparently having sex with Ashley Greene and sex being so loud it woke up hotel guests.
