Kevin Bacon Watched 'Footloose' On Netflix To Learn 'Tonight Show' Dance Moves

Let's hear it for the boy ... who uses Netflix.

When Kevin Bacon appeared on "The Tonight Show" in March, the actor came in style, recreating the angry warehouse dance he made famous in "Footloose." On Friday, he revealed to Jimmy Fallon that might not have been possible without video streaming.

"The crazy thing was is I was working on 'The Following,' and I wrapped the night before at about, literally like 2 o'clock in the morning," Bacon said. "And I'm standing in my kitchen and I'm trying to remember some of these moves, and I'd seen the thing that you had put together and I had to go and rent 'Footloose' on Netflix, literally."

Well, whatever he did worked. The actor went on to tell Fallon people still come up and tell him his "Tonight Show" appearance was "the most moving thing" he's ever done. And with moves like these, can you even blame them?
