    Melissa Etheridge will temporarily step in for Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong while he takes a break from performing in his Broadway musical American Idiot, reports The Associated Press. Etheridge will play drug dealer "St. Jimmy" from February 1st to February 6th. Armstrong, the composer and co-author of the musical, returns February 10th.

    Director Michael Mayer is stoked to have Etheridge on board. "This character is seductive, thrilling and dangerous. Melissa Etheridge is all that and so much more," Mayer said.

    Will Melissa Etheridge make a good St. Jimmy?
