Indie drama “Like Sunday, Like Rain” will star former “Gossip Girl” actress Leighton Meester as well as mark the acting debut of Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong, according to Deadline.
Meester plays a struggling singer who becomes the guardian of a 12 year old boy, played by newbie kid actor Julian Shatkin. Armstrong will play Meester’s boyfriend, while Debra Messing will play the boy’s mother. Frank Whaley wrote and is currently directing the film in New York.
If Meester is required to sing in the film, it should be no problem for the actress who also has a side career as a recording artist, having released several singles and recorded songs for various soundtracks. She also lent her voice to “Country Strong” opposite Garrett Hedlund. She’s still most known for her portrayal of Blair Waldorf throughout all five seasons of The CW’s “Gossip Girl,” and most recently she wrapped up shooting on family comedy “The Judge” opposite Robert Downey, Jr.
