Between rehab and un-Green-Day-like album sales, Billie Joe Armstrong has had a rough year, and we sincerely wish him the best. At least he got a good chuckle, or close to one, in a new deleted scene from Judd Apatow flick This Is 40, where the Green Day frontman can be seen straining not to burst out laughing. Armstrong plays a more pretentious and absurd version of himself, with an unhealthy interest in both Norwegian death metal and indie godheads Belle and Sebastian. He's in a discussion with the movie's star Paul Rudd, who plays a record executive. Telling you a whole lot else would spoil it, but it's an amusing minute-and-a-half or so, for sure.
