Chase Crawford won't be dancing on our screen any time soon...


We love any excuse to gaze for hours on end at Chace Crawford, so you can imagine our dismay on hearing that he’s had to pull out of his latest flick!

The Gossip Girl hottie was meant to be starring in the remake of 1980s classic Footloose. You know, the one with Kevin Bacon. Who's Kevin Bacon? Nevermind, here's a clip...

Chase Crawford's rep told Entertainment Weekly that he doesn’t have the time to commit to the heavy schedule! Awwww we would have LOVED to see him working his best dance moves!

It did look like the rehearsals were going to be grueling for poor Chace as he had before admitted that it was going to be a real challenge learning all the dance routines.

I’m going to need the whole nine months to get to where I really need to be. I have some movement and I’m really happy to learn a lot of new stuff.

Zac Efron was also down for the part and had to pull out and now producers may have to cast an unknown actor, or failing that launch a nationwide search to find the best all dancing hunk to take the part!

Are you gutted that Chace has had to quit? Who do you think would suit the lead role best, tell us your ideas here please!
