The 'Footloose' Legacy

While they were talking about dancing, Kevin said 'Footloose' cursed him at weddings--DJs love to play the film's theme when they spot him at the reception: "Inevitably, I'm sitting there having a good time [and] everybody looks at me, turns and [starts clapping] [I'm] a trained monkey."

Accordingly, Kevin has started pre-empting DJs with $20 in hand, bribing them not to play it. Kevin said he'd recently been approached to make a cameo in the remake ("I'm old enough that a movie I did is being remade. That is pathetic.") but the role was 'dopey.'

Few people know that producers almost prevented him from being cast in the original: "The quote was, literally, 'He's not f'able.'"
