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.”
