Taking on the biggest role of his career, Chace Crawford opened up with Entertainment Weekly about getting ready for “Footloose”.
Talking about preparing for the role, the “Gossip Girl” hunk said, “I don’t know if the gymnastics [high bar] scene is going to make it… I’ve got some movement in me, but I’m not a dancer. I need to start stretching now.”
While it seemed just as good a career move as any, Zac Efron recently revealed his motivation behind turning down the lead role in the remake of “Footloose.”
The “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” stud explained that while it was a promising gig, doing the “Footloose” movie was just more of the same for him. “I was looking for a new challenge, and this was another musical.”
Sorry to disappoint you Zac Efron fans, but it looks like he will not be partaking in the remake of the 80’s hit, “Footloose.”
The updated version was planned to be directed by Kenny Ortega, who directed Zac in all three "High School Musical" productions, but recently, a source tells ET that the tween heartthrob has decided to pull out of the film.
