It has been 30 years since the film “Footloose” was released, and star Kevin Bacon still looks like his old self, dancing the same moves on Jimmy Fallon’s late night talk show.
The 55-year-old actor stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday night but Fallon played the John Lithgow part to perfection: “I should quickly mention that dancing has been outlawed here at The Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon informed the audience.
“The Following” star, who was in his dressing room, and he did not come out when the late-night host called his name. “Dancing is illegal,” Bacon, who portrayed Ren McCormack, says in shock. NOT! Let the Footloose number begin.
Cue the mock indignation and bring on the defiant dance in the hallways, as Bacon enlists some dancers to show Fallon he’s mad as hell and gonna dance…
