Chace Crawford is reportedly furious his name has been attached to the FOOTLOOSE remake - after hordes of teenage girls swarmed the set of his show to sing him the film's theme tune.
The Gossip Girl actor was linked to the part made famous by Kevin Bacon in the 1984 classic after Zac Efron pulled out in March (09).
Crawford reportedly impressed casting bosses with a stunning screen test, and has expressed his desire to move into films.
But after the rumours surrounding his connection to the project was leaked to the press, the TV hunk has faced constant serenading from his female fans while filming hit show Gossip Girl in New York.
And TV bosses have been forced to hire extra security for the star after the musical bombardment - which has led Crawford to seek refuge in his native Texas.
A source tells E! Online, "They had to beef up security because more girls have been showing up to set every day singing Footloose.
"He couldn't take it anymore, so he's leaving town tomorrow."
