Justin Timberlake helped director Craig Brewer cast the lead in the new Footloose movie after Zac Efron and Chace Crawford pulled out of the project.
Brewer, who directed Timberlake in 2006 film Black Snake Moan, turned to the singer/actor for help when he needed to cast a budding star who could dance as Ren MCCormack in the remake.
Timberlake recommended one of his former back-up dancers, Kenny Wormald.
Brewer tells HollyScoop.com, "It was important that we had a new and young and fresh face for Ren MCCormack, that's who Kevin Bacon was back in the day, and we spent forever looking."
