Julianne Hough: Footloose with Kenny Wormald!

Ariel has found her Ren!

Julianne Hough sings up in lights on stage during the 2010 CMA Music Festival Nightly Concerts held at LP Field in Nashville, Tennessee earlier this month.

It was just announced that Kenny Wormald, 25, has been cast opposite the 21-year-old triple threat in Footloose.

Kenny will make his feature film debut as Ren, Dennis Quaid will play Ariel’s father, Reverend Moore, and Miles Teller playing Willard.

Producer Craig Zadan says of the casting, “When we discovered Kevin Bacon in 1984, we were both excited and gratified – and also knew the chances of ever duplicating that effort was a million to one shot. Decades later Kenny Wormald proved history could repeat itself.”

Check out Kenny‘s dancing skills in Center Stage 2: Turn It Up below!

    I love Kenny! I remember watching him on the MTV show , “Dance Life” a couple years ago! The clip JJR put on doesn’t really show his dance skillz though! He’s mostly a hip hop dancer, he’s in music video’s like Nelly Furtado’s “Promiscuous” and “Maneater” and he’s danced for people like J.LO!

    Pretty cool:) But never really knew he could act!? So I guess we’ll see!

    AHHHHH PERFECT!!! Finally they casted base on talent!!! These two are amaaaazing dancers and are perfect for the role… Not to mention their incredibly good looking, finally new faces instead of the same old recycled actors! This seems like a credible remake now! So excited can’t wait!! They look so cute together! The chemistry will be amazing.
