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!
