Footloose’s Kenny Wormald Is Much More Aggressive Than He Looks

By

The remake of Footloose arrives in theaters tomorrow, with Kenny Wormald taking over for Kevin Bacon as Ren McCormack. (The original: not as fun as you remember.) The 27-year old Wormald has been a professional dancer since he was a kid, growing up in Stoughton, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston. Last night, we caught up with him at the Footloose premiere after-party at Catch Roof, and spoke with him about his dancing, his Boston accent, and his willingness to protect his co-star — and Ryan Seacrest's girlfriend — Julianne Hough from creeps.*
