Start Stretching, Chace Crawford!

Start Stretching, Chace Crawford!

After Zac Efron dropped out, Chace Crawford quickly swooped up the role of Ren McCormack for the remake of the 1984 dance classic Footloose. The 23-year-old actor talked to EW about his upcoming fancy footwork:

On putting on Zac’s dancing shoes: “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.”

On dancing and singing for director Kenny Ortega (High School Musical) during his audition: “It was, like, five hours of the most rigorous tests ever. I walked out very confident.”

On preparing for his role as Ren: “I don’t know if the gymnastics [high bar] scene is going to make it… I’ve got some movement in me, but I’m not a dancer. I need to start stretching now.”
