Crawford Undergoes Musical Training For Footloose

CHACE CRAWFORD will undergo gruelling singing and dancing lessons before the cameras role on his remake of movie musical FOOTLOOSE.
The Gossip Girl star has signed to take on the role made famous by Kevin Bacon in the 1984 original film, after Zac Efron was forced to pull out.
Crawford has limited musical experience, and director Kenny Ortega admits he'll need coaching before he's ready to take on the role.
Ortega - who is choreographing Michael Jackson's comeback tour - tells Us Weekly, "He really sizzles. He has musicality. We need to work with him on music and dance. There are some big shoes to fill. But he has it in him."
