GOSSIP GIRL star Chace Crawford has reportedly auditioned to fill Zac Efron's dancing shoes in the remake of Footloose.
The High School Musical actor was slated to take over Kevin Bacon's lead role in the updated film, but pulled out earlier this month (Mar09).
And now Crawford is being lined up for the part - and has impressed movie studio bosses with his screen test, according to E! Online.
A source tells the website, "He did really well."
