[BlackTree TV - Los Angeles] Shawn Edwards talks to the cast of Footloose and sits down with Actors Julianne Hough and Kenny Wormald to talk about the challenge of remaking this 1984 classic.

Kenny Wormald (Ren) -- Kenny Wormald is an American actor and dancer from Stoughton, MA.
Dancing since the age of six, Kenny was accepted into Boston's prestigious Sherry Gold Studios where his talent was recognized immediately. Over the next decade, Kenny trained in every genre of dance, from ballet to tap to jazz to hip hop, and even received some acrobatic training! In 1996, at the age of 10, Kenny was selected to dance for President Clinton at the White House as a part of the annual Easter celebration but it was in 2002 when his talents were recognized on a more official level when he won the gold medal at the World Dance Championships in Riesa, Germany for a tap routine he performed.
Kenny's previous television projects include The Drew Cary Show and the MTV reality hit Dancelife, where he was one of 6 dancers followed during their times trying to make it as a professional dancer in Los Angeles. It was from that and a chance meeting at Millennium Dance Studios with casting director Karen Meisels which led to Kenny having the opportunity to audition for and ultimately be cast in "Center Stage 2," his first leading role as an actor. He also appeared in the films "You Got Served," "Jackass 2" and "Clerks 2."
He has danced in music videos for such artists as Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Chris Brown, Nelly Furtado, Kylie Minogue, Mariah Carey, Jojo and Prince and has performed live and toured with numerous artists, the most notable of those being Justin Timberlake and The Pussycat Dolls, both of whom he joined for nationwide and international tours.
Kenny currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.

Julianne Hough (Ariel) -- A true triple-threat, singer/actress/dancer Julianne Hough was already known to millions of fans as the two-time professional dance champion on ABC-TV's top-rated Dancing With the Stars before expanding into the worlds of music and film.
Although she has been winning world dance titles since her early teens, Julianne's ultimate goal has always been a career in country music. Her self-titled debut album, released by Universal Music Group Nashville in 2008, hit the Billboard Country charts at #1 and entered the Billboard 200 at #3, marking the highest debut for a country artist since 2006. Her first two singles from the album, "That Song in My Head" and "My Hallelujah Song," soared up the country charts and she earned her first two 2009 Academy of Country Music Awards for Top New Female Vocalist and Top New Artist. Hitting the road for the first time as a recording artist, Julianne opened for superstar Brad Paisley and later toured with George Strait, playing over 100 shows in 2009. Her second album, The Julianne Hough Holiday Collection, became an instant holiday classic for her legions of fans, distributed exclusively at Target. Her much-anticipated follow-up album will be released by Mercury Nashville later this year. Her latest single, "Is That So Wrong?," is taking radio by storm and reflects the edgier, more mature tone of the new CD. Julianne has written multiple tracks for the new album, working with Dann Huff, one the hottest producers in country music today (Martina McBride, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, among others). She is currently touring the U.S.
Having become a household name virtually overnight on Dancing With the Stars, then making a seamless transition to recording artist, Julianne is also well on her way to making her mark in the world of motion pictures, most recently appearing in the star-studded ensemble of Screen Gems' dramatic musical "Burlesque," working alongside Cher, Christina Aguilera, Stanley Tucci, Eric Dane, Kristen Bell and Cam Gigandet. In the film written and directed by Steve Antin, Julianne plays Georgia.
