First Chace Crawford had to convince the producers of the “Footloose” reboot that he was the right guy for the role after Zac Efron left, but he probably wasn’t counting on having to impress the wife of Kevin Bacon.

Despite taking over the role that Kevin made famous in the 1984 version, Kyra Sedgwick told People she’s excited for the young star’s take on the iconic character.

“It’s that Chace Crawford guy, right?” Kyra told People. “We’re thrilled! Sosie is a big fan. We met him at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Kevin and he had a chat. He’s very sweet.”

But Kyra appears to be partial to her husband’s take on the role of Ren McCormack.

Adding, “He has big shoes to fill!”
