Kevin Bacon Turned Down a Cameo in New Footloose Remake

One thing you won’t see in the upcoming “Footloose” remake is a cameo by Kevin Bacon. But it’s not the fault of the writers, the producers or the director. It was Kevin’s idea.

Director Craig Brewer had a great part for Kevin, but Kevin turned it down.

“Kevin was wise in saying no to it. I think he had the right reason for it. I think that he knew it would cheapen it somehow because if suddenly he showed up winking at the camera, it would have taken some of the teeth out of the narrative.”

What?! I personally think it would have been great to see Kevin in the remake! Possibly playing the Preacher… Julianne Hough‘s “Dad” who is played by Dennis Quaid.

What do you think…would you like to have seen Kevin make a cameo?
