Kevin Bacon Is Ready To Cut Loose – ‘Footloose’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Kevin Bacon hasn’t cut loose – Footloose – since 1984, but the actor says he’d definitely cut a rug in the rumored remake of the famed flick.

Bacon says he’d love to be a part of the upcoming movie – which is rumored to star High School Musical’s Zac Efron in the role Bacon made famous – but says he’s 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 I’m sure they’d only think of me as the John Lithgow role.”

However, if he can’t make his teen sensation comeback, Bacon says Footloose isn’t the only musical he’s interested in, and he’s looking into doing a “cool, gothic” musical in the future.

As he puts it, “I’m down for anything as long as it’s 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).
