Zac Efron has been replaced in the new Footloose movie by Gossip Girl star Chase Crawford, who bares more than a passing resemblance to the 17 Again star. The film is being directed by Kenny Ortega, who had previously cast his High School Musical star to shake off his Sunday shoes, in what seemed like a rematch made in heaven. But Efron wants to pull away from the singing/dancing/playing basketball shirtless roles, and concentrate on actual acting. In fairness, he was decent in 17 Again, so maybe there is hope. I’ve never seen Crawford in anything, so have no Idea is he cant act or not, but he’s also been cast in Wuthering Heights, so he’s doing something right.
