Kyra Sedgwick: Chace Crawford ‘Has Big Shoes To Fill' For ‘Footloose' Reboot

First Chace Crawford had to convince the producers of the "Footloose" reboot that he was the right guy for the role after Zac Efron left, but he probably wasn't counting on having to impress the wife of Kevin Bacon.

"It's that Chace Crawford guy, right?" Kyra told People. "We're thrilled! Sosie is a big fan. We met him at the White House Correspondent's Dinner. Kevin and he had a chat. He's very sweet."

But Kyra appears to be partial to her husband's take on the role of Ren McCormack.
