Kevin Bacon, who says he never watches his own movies, had to view Footloose on Netflix so he could learn the steps for a skit on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show Friday night, RumorFix is reporting.
Kevin danced his way to The Tonight Show stage, showing he’s still got it, even at 55!
He told On Air with Ryan Seacrest Monday morning that he wanted to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Footloose, but admits “I didn’t really know they were going to blow it up in the way they did.” The actor wasn’t sure he could pull off the dance sequence, as he in the middle of filming his hit show, The Following.
Kevin reveals he only had a few days to prepare for the gig, explaining, “I was literally standing in the kitchen at 2 a.m. looking at the moves they wanted me to do.” He even admits to watching dance scenes from the movie to get back into the grove.
His hard work paid off! He killed it on The Tonight Show!
