We never thought it would happen.
But it did this weekend.
Kevin Bacon saw the remake of "Footloose."
The original Ren tweeted a pic of his ticket stub to his WhoSay page yesterday after seeing the flick in Boston.
"F-Loose!" Bacon wrote on Twitter. "Just saw it. Congrats to Craig, Kenny, Julianne, Dennis, Andie, Miles, and the rest of the cast. U guys rocked it!"
Kenny Wormald, aka the new Ren, tweeted back, "Thank you!!! @kevinbacon — your my favorite Ren."
Costar Julianne Hough tweeted, "82 and sunny in LA just when I thought it couldn't get any better! Thank you so much! :)"
Funny enough, Bacon's wife Kyra Sedgwick told me just a week ago that they had no plans to see "Footloose" 2.0.
"No, I don't think so," "The Closer" star said at the Environmental Media Awards. "It's not on our list."
Earlier that same day, Bacon tweeted, "Just saw a TV ad for FLoose. Marketing a remake by putting down the orig? A bit lame dont ya think?"
Bacon was asked to be in the new movie, but he politely declined the offer.
"Kevin was wise in saying no to it," director Craig Brewer told me shortly before the movie opened Oct. 14. "I think he had the right reason for it. I think that he knew it would cheapen it somehow because if suddenly he showed up winking at the camera, it would have taken some of the teeth out of the narrative."
