Unknown Kenny Wormald has been chosen to replace Zac Efron and Chace Crawford in the movie remake of Footloose.
The project has been put on hold twice after the departure of the two heartthrobs initially lined up to play the role made famous by Kevin Bacon.
But it’s now back in track after 25 year old dancer Wormald was cast.
Wormald previously appeared on Jennifer Lopez’s MTV reality show DanceLife and 2008 movie Center Stage 2: Turn it Up.
The movie is expected to hit movie theatres in April, 2011, directed by Hustle & Flow filmmaker Craig Brewer.
