Kevin Bacon and Jimmy Fallon Horse Around for Cover of Tom Petty's 'Free Fallin' ': Watch

Kevin Bacon performs "Free Fallin'" on "The Tonight Show"

Kevin Bacon’s acting talents have won him many admirers. Who could forget his performances as a dancing revolutionary (Footloose), a hideous villain (Sleepers) and…old-school Tom Petty
 
The Golden Globe-winning actor appeared on The Tonight Show overnight where he transformed into a rock star for a cover of Petty’s late ‘80s classic “Free Fallin,’” which peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

Tom Petty Originally Wrote 'Free Fallin'' Just to Make Jeff Lynne Laugh 

Bacon and Jimmy Fallon horsed around for the “First Drafts of Rock” segment where they tackle the original version of a song, this time with a strong equidae theme (true story: Petty actually wrote the song to make Jeff Lynne laugh).
