Billie Joe Armstrong Discusses an Illuminating Solo Project in Hilarious ‘This is 40’ Deleted Scene
Here, Billie Joe talks Norwegian Death Metal, using Rudd's record label-man character as a potential outlet for his terribly unpromotable project. Gotta love Paul Rudd playing the “all smiles” work situation, in which manners and passive-aggressive social norms mandate it's not possible to tell the other person how fucking dumb their idea truly is. Simple premise, executed quite nicely. Damn shame this didn't make the final cut.
On another note, Billie Joe does look a shit ton better than he did whilst smashing guitars on that Las Vegas stage. Definitely nice to see.
