Kenny Wormald Is The New Kevin Bacon In “Footloose”

At first I thought this guy’s name was Kenny Wormland, but that was just my eyes being tricky. Actually, his name is Kenny Wormald and he was just cast as the Kevin Bacon character in the new, big screen remake of “Footloose.” Yeah, I’m still not sure why they’re remaking it either, but I guess we should be grateful they’re not doing a present day Latin-themed sequel, like the god awful “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights.” Anyway, who the hell is Kenny Wormald, besides being easy on the eyes and Zac Efron and Chace Crawford’s latest enemy? (Zac and Chace were up for the role of “Ren” too.) Our friends at Crushable found out five fun facts about the virtual unknown, including that he’s been in a million movie sequels, like “Center Stage II,” “Clerks II,” and “Jackass II.” Thankfully, as the role requires it, Kenny can dance, having appeared in music videos for Mariah Carey, Madonna, and Christina Aguilera. So, what do you think — is Kenny on par with Kevin’s ’80s-era hotness? I think I need to see him in a sleeveless shirt before I can decide. [Crushable]
