Green Day star Billie Joe Armstrong's theatrical debut in 2010 and 2011 has helped him land a big TV role opposite Edie Falco in Nurse Jackie.

The punk rocker will play a potential love interest for Falco's drug-using medic character in the opening episode of season four, which will air in April, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Armstrong, who turns 40 next month, made his professional acting debut on Broadway in the Green Day musical American Idiot.

He'll join new cast member Rosie Perez on the hit show.
