So it is the Smurf’s (Smurves’ ..?) turn to be ground up into pixels and painted atop a live-action film filled with celebrities taking healthy paychecks or advancement gigs.
So far, The Smurfs: Of Course It’s In Fuckin’ 3D will be hitting theaters with Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria, George Lopez, Alan Cumming, and Katy Perry filling roles. As of today, you can add Glee cast member Jayma Mays to that immense cast. I haven’t gone Gay For Glee with Devin, but the image search for Ms. Mays is quickly convincing that I need to find a seat next to the girlfriend when the show starts back up.
These names, big and small, are spread across live-action roles and the expected smurf voices. Hank Azaria will be playing Gargamel (which for some reason is being reported as an animated character- which will make no fucking sense), while NPH and the recently added Mays will play an expecting human couple. Katy Perry will be voicing Smurfette, and Quentin Tarantino will not be Brainy Smurf (yes, this was a rumor). Alan Cumming and George Lopez, I have no idea. Smurfs I think. I’m not checking again.
The story approach sounds pretty Bee Movie-ish as the aforementioned couple run across the Smurfs in Central Park and have their lives turned cuh-razee.
