Bacon says hed love to be a part of the upcoming movie which is rumored to star High School Musicals Zac Efron in the role Bacon made famous but says hes so old nowadays, the director would probably only cast him as the strict parent in the film.
Bacon explains, I would love to dance, but Im sure theyd only think of me as the John Lithgow role.
However, if he cant make his teen sensation comeback, Bacon says Footloose isnt the only musical hes interested in, and hes looking into doing a cool, gothic musical in the future.
As he puts it, Im down for anything as long as its cool. John Travolta did it perfectly in Hairspray because the role fit him. I need to find something that fits me.
For now, Bacon is sticking to action flicks and his latest, Death Sentence, hits theaters this Friday (Aug. 31).
