Kenny Wormald Footloose

Kenny and Julianne both landed their breakout roles in the 1984 classic remake of ‘Footloose’ – get ready for some hot, sexy dancing like you’ve never seen!

He’s your new obsession waiting to happen — his name is Kenny Wormald. This guy knows how to move, he’s good looking, and he’s got that bad boy look on lock. spoke with the 26-year-old actor and he reveals that from the moment he met his co-star Julianne Hough there was an instant connection.“We tested once together when she had already had the role,” Kenny says. “It was just like ‘We are going to put the music on and see how you two go.’ Right away we were dancing and grooving with each other.”

One of the reasons these two had such great onscreen chemistry is because they became best buds in real life. Kenny tells us they’d hang out all the time off set — love it!

“[Julianne] is a wonderful girl,” he gushes. “Even after we booked it, we worked together prior to shooting, tons of dance rehearsals, so we were comfortable in that environment. The chemistry is real.”

This is so exciting — we just hope Julianne’s boyfriend, Ryan Seacrest, isn’t too jealous!

It’s hard to top a classic – but Kenny tells us he made it his own and wasn’t trying to outdo the film’s original star Kevin Bacon.

“What’s cool is I went in with a Boston accent and they never told me to get rid of it,” Kenny says. “Once I booked it they changed it from Chicago to Boston.”

Get your dancing shoes ready, HollywoodLifers — the film hits theaters Oct. 14.

wow. she looks so much like jennifer anniston in this shot. ryan should be worried, b/c everyone that dances with julianne falls in love with her. i’m not sure if the reverse is true, but the guys that dance with her digg her and she always looks to be reciprocating (tho maybe it’s just b/c she’s a professional dancer). i’m interested to see how her acting is in this. i like her and her brother and they seem to be people that you’d like to see become successful and be around for awhile.
