(Newser) – And this generation's Kevin Bacon will be ... Chace Crawford of Gossip Girl. The 23-year-old heartthrob has been picked to star in the remake of Footloose, which launched Bacon's career 25 years ago. Crawford will portray the teenage I-just-want-to-dance rebel who shakes up a small town. So who will be his leading lady? E! Online reports that none other than Miley Cyrus is a top contender.
