Posted on: May 30, 2009

 

Well I’m sure majority of you have not seen or maybe even heard of the 1984 Dance Classic Footloose, But Gossip Girl Hottie Chace Crawford Is playing the lead role that was once played by movie star Kevin Bacon.  Paramount Pictures landed Chace the lead after Zac Efron droped out.

“I know Zac and we’re actually friends,” says Crawford. “He’s gotta make the best choice for his career at this point and I have to make the best for mine and luckily it worked out for both of us.” Crawford had to go threw a series of brutal audition before he was landed the role, which was givin to him by producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Hairspray) and director Kenny Ortega (High School Musical). “It was, like, five hours of the most rigorous tests ever,” says Crawford. “I walked out very confident.” He had a right to be, according to Zadan: “At the end of it, we all sort of looked at each other and said, ‘He’s the guy!’” Also a Paramount spokesperson confirmined to EW that a leading lady might already be in site, Dancing With the StarsJulianne Hough will be doing a screen-test this week,. . .  Credit to hollywoodinsider.ew.com
