Zac Efron turned down the starring role and the whole movie Footloose. The 1984 remake is now in pre-production. The replacement for Zac is actor Chace Crawford. Zac told Radaronline how he feels about Chace picking up the role that he turned down:
“I’ve always thought Footloose was a great project and Chace is an amazing choice. I can’t wait to see it!”
Chase said some nice words about Zac to EW.com:
“I know Zac and we’re actually friends, 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.”
I thought Derek Hough from Dancing with the Stars would be awesome over Chase. Derek is very Kevin Bacony. What do you think? Vote Below!
