Kenny Wormald Is An 'August Man'

Kenny Wormald suits up in Burberry for a feature in August Man‘s May issue.

Here’s what the 26-year-old dancer and Footloose star had to share with the mag:

On landing the role of Ren McCormack: “I looked at it like a mountain I had to conquer. Like the mountain in Paramount Pictures’ logo. I recognized opportunities like this don’t happen every day. I wanted the director, producers, and studio to know they picked the right guy, so I worked my ass off.”

On working with co-star Julianne Hough: “[She] was a great partner to have in this film. She’s a sweetheart and is a very hard worker. We were both honored to carry such an iconic remake on our shoulders.”

On who he considers the greatest dancer or actor: “Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly were always a big inspiration growing up. My favorite actor is Daniel Day-Lewis. All three of these guys are very different bu you lose yourself in their performance. That’s what it’s all about.”

FYI: Footloose hits theaters October 14!

    An unknown actor, come on. They would have been wiser to have cast one of the below rising young, hip actors and this movie would have been much more critically and commercially successful:
    Shia LaBeouf, Anton Yelchin, Zac Efron, Ed Westwick, Penn Badgley, Chad Michael Murray, Adam Brody, Thomas Dekker, Chace Crawford, Emile Hirsch, James Lafferty, Michael Cera.

    @Paris Jade: Zac was cast to play this role but he pulled out because he wanted to do something different and challenge himself as an actor. Chace Crawford also got the role but dropped out.

    K simply are you there?

  • Joy McBride

    None of the above mentioned actors can dance, Kenny did all of the dancing himself. This movie is going to be BIG! The director previewed to surprise audiences in LA, NY, and last week to CMT in Nashville. Comments on survey were ” Best remake I have ever seen”, “Ya’ll are gonna love it from CMT” “Outstanding remake” , Try waiting until you see the movie before you judge it.
