Get ready ladies, we’ve got a major hottie on our hands — and he can DANCE!

Kenny Wormald, 25, most famous for his role in Center Stage: Turn It Up, has just nabbed the role as “Ren” in the upcoming remake of Footloose! There was speculation that Gossip Girl hottie Chace Crawford would be cast in the role after Zac Efron dropped out, but it looks like it’ll be Kenny who gets to fill Kevin Bacon‘s legendary shoes!

In case you didn’t see the original 1984 film, we’ll give you a refresher. The story centers around a teen named Ren who moves from Chicago to a super small town that doesn’t allow rock music or dancing. Ren can’t believe such a ridiculous rule exists, so he sets off on a quest to bring dancing back — just in time for his high school’s senior prom.

The remake will also star Dennis Quaid and former Dancing with the Stars pro Julianne Hough!
