Watch Kevin Bacon’s Response To Actors Strike Ending, Because It’s A Show-Stopper

Kevin Bacon kicked off his Sunday shoes on Thursday to recreate a “Footloose” moment in celebration of the actors strike ending.

The actor shared video (watch below) of him busting some vintage moves from his career-catapulting 1984 film, after SAG-AFTRA reached a tentative agreement with Hollywood studios on Wednesday.

“Strike over!” he wrote, tagging the labor union’s account on X (formerly Twitter).

Backlit by an open door in what appears to be a barn, the 65-year-old Bacon boogies to Kenny Loggins’ “Footloose.”

The clip appeared to be a nod to the warehouse scene of his “Footloose” character Ren McCormack, the boy who fought a bible-belt town’s ban on dancing.

The role turbocharged Bacon’s star power and now he has another reason for happy feet: SAG-AFTRA reportedly secured a deal with Hollywood studios that exceeds $1 billion to guarantee higher minimum salaries and streaming residuals.
