"I was furious ... It's like a starting pitcher getting taken out of a game -- no one wants to be told they can't get the guy out ... I had a stunt double, a dance double and two gymnastics doubles. There were five of us in the f---ing outfit, and I felt horrible. ... When the movie came out, the studio told me to never mention that they used a double. While I was in no position to do this, I told them, 'You are out of your f--king mind!' "Stunt double or not, it didn't matter in the end. 'Footloose' developed a huge following and ended up launching Kevin Bacon's acting career. You can assume Kenny Wormald -- a former back-up dancer for Justin Timberlake, for what it's worth and the star of the new 'Footloose' -- is hoping the same happens for his remake, which opens this weekend.
