Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted that he wanted to be in the American Idiot movie, which will be coming to HBO. “Can. I. Be. In. This. I’ll. Play. Anyone,” he tweeted today (October 6), emphasizing his enthusiasm with periods. Green Day retweeted Miranda, so it looks like the Hamilton creator has the band’s approval.

As far as where they are in terms of making the movie happen, Billie Joe Armstrong said all systems were go and they were just waiting on final script rewrites. Now, come on Hollywood, and get on it.

In the meantime, Miranda will be hosting Saturday Night Live this Saturday with Twenty One Pilots serving as the musical guest.
