We’d LOVE to see Rob take on the big-screen version of the hit Broadway musical! Do you think Rob is right for the part?

Thank God Vh1 brought back up Pop Up Video! Without it, we’d never know that Green Day front-man Billie Joe Armstrong thinks Robert Pattinson would be the perfect male lead in a movie version of the band’s smash Broadway musical American Idiot!

R-Patz fansite Robstenation harkens back to the original 2009 article, in which Billie Joe proclaimed Rob as his first choice:

“I’m gonna say maybe that kid in Twilight. … He’s a good actor. There’s still more to come with that kid.”

“More to come?” Oh, B.J., you had no idea how right you were.

Watch the Pop Up Video version of Green Day’s “21 Guns” below — graciously uploaded by R-Patz fan site — then tell us if you think Rob would, indeed, be the perfect choice for the movie.
