It seems there’s a remake of the movie Footloose in the near future … You remember, the 1984 film starring Kevin Bacon, Lori Singer and John Lithgow. I remember the movie, I actually liked the movie … and when I heard that Julianne Hough might be taking the part that was played by Lori Singer … well, that definitely got my interest.
With two Dancing With The Stars championships already under her belt, we know girl can dance, she’s beautiful, and I have a feeling acting will come easy for her. So we’ll just have to wait and see where this goes.
Kenny Ortega, the movie’s director, was recently seen in a video not only praising Julianne for her dancing, and beauty … but actually crossing his fingers at the possibility she might be selected for the role. She hasn’t been selected yet, but I think it looks pretty much like Julianne might be playing opposite Chance Crawford in the new film.
The director didn’t really hold anything back when he was talking to E! "I love her," Ortega said. "I adore her. I’m a big fan of hers. Not only how beautiful but how deep her talent goes."
Julianne has already said she will be taking next season off from DWTS. That was because she wanted to work on a new album and concentrate on her singing career. But I don’t think taking on a starring role in a major motion picture would be a bad career move either.
The Boot reported that when GAC asked Dierks Bentley about the possibility of him dancing, his response was “There’s a reason why I play guitar, I have no dance moves”. Dierks said he was asked to be on the first season of the show, and for him – it was a definite no.
Dierks is one of those entertainers that would probably have a little trouble fitting a reality show into his schedule anyway. He’s in Charlotte, N.C. tonight, Raleigh, N.C., tomorrow night, and of course Nashville will have him on June 11 for the CMA Music Festival. He won’t get to stay there long though with a show in Boston on June 12, followed by Hartfort, Conn. and Gillford, N.H. the next two nights.
Since we won’t be getting to see Dierks dance on television anytime soon, here’s a clip from last season with Julianne and Chuck and the cha-cha.
Time for me to go. The last day of work for this week. Then I’m hoping for a very quiet weekend.
Talk to you all soon!
