Zac Efron has bowed out of the forthcoming Footloose remake with grace, jazz-hands, and a little bit of corporate dogma-ese. "The actors that work really hard in this industry are always shaking things up, trying new genres, acquiring new skill sets," he said. Skill sets! How does a high school musicaler even know such a word? In any case, what he's trying to say politely is: "Been there, done that." Gossip Girl's Chase Crawford is rumored to be interested in the Ren McCormack role, so adroitly played by Kevin Bacon back in prehistoric times.
