Watch Kevin Bacon's Response To Actors Strike Ending, Because It's A Showstopper

Bacon's reaction to a SAG-AFTRA deal is six degrees of sensational.

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 the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists reached a tentative agreement with Hollywood studios on Wednesday.

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

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

The clip appears 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 studios that exceeds $1 billion to guarantee higher minimum salaries and streaming residuals.
