"The first day I rehearsed, Michael [Mayer] goes "Oh, there’s something I forgot to tell you. This is gonna be really awkward at first.” And it WAS really awkward… I was really really nervous about whether I could do it at all. I was nervous about acting in general, you know, like the silent moments, the stillness in parts; I’m not used to doing that at all. It’s dead silent, you brain’s going brrrrr, you know, stay still, don’t say anything. You know, that part was hard.” - Billie Joe Armstrong on rehearsing for the role of St. Jimmy
