The original “Footloose” hit a major milestone on Monday (Feb. 17). The movie starring Kevin Bacon officially turns 30 years old, and “The Following” star celebrated its anniversary by sharing a throwback photo to his dancing days on Twitter:
“It was 30 years ago today,” Bacon writes. “Ren McCormack taught the town to play…”
In those 30 years, the cast of the original “Footloose” — including Bacon, John Lithgow, Sarah Jessica Parker and Lori Singer — have gone on to enjoy diverse careers in TV and film, while a remake of “Footloose” was released in 2011 starring Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid and Miles Teller.
Can you believe it’s already been 30 years since the original “Footloose” was released?
