Footloose Finally Gets a Leading Man!

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure!

Zac Efron and Chace Crawford might have thought they were too cool to reprise Kevin Bacon’s original role for the remake of Footloose, but newcomer Kenny Wormald will happily take their spot.

Chace Crawford Drops Out of Footloose Remake

Paramount Pictures announced on Tuesday that Kenny would take on the role that Kevin Bacon made famous back in 1984.

The musical is about a city boy who comes to a small town where rock music and dancing have been banned.

The newcomer has plenty of dance experience. He was in the MTV series "Dancelife”

Wormald will star alongside hottie Julianne Hough so that should be good! The movie is set to hit theatres on April 1, 2011.
