George Lopez, Alan Cumming, Jonathan Winters, and Katy Perry are Smurfs?

03.05.2010

Casting seems to be heating up on the live-action/animated SMURFS. Just the other day we announced that the awesome Neil Patrick Harris would be cast as the lead human in the film. And now we've got four more to add to the mix: George Lopez, Alan Cumming, Jonathan Winters, and... Katy Perry, WTF?

Lopez and Cumming are reportedly going play "Grouchy Smurf" and "Gutsy Smurf" respectively. Will they somehow get Smurf Lopez to sneak in some of his patented Mexican-flavored barbs? I will seriously go out and OD on crack if that happens.

Old school comedy great Jonathan Winters, whom I've always liked from stuff like IT'S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD and the weird-as-f*ck made-for-TV 80s version of ALICE IN WONDERLAND, will voice "Papa Smurf". Appropriate, since Winters voiced various characters during the time of the Hanna-Barbera "Smurfs" cartoon.

And then there's Katy Perry, who's in talks to voice "Smurfette". THE SMURFS would be the pop singer's first "acting" role, though she will be seen in GET HIM TO THE GREEK before that but as herself. Have you Google image searched "Smurfette" with the Safe Search off? I have (solely for the purposes of this story, of course). NSFWness abound! And I fully expect creepy Katy Perry/Smurfette manips to surface soon.

THE SMURFS, from director Raja Gosnell (BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA), is set for release July 29, 2011.

Way to go Hollywood! Winters and NPH are the only redeeming qualities. I despise George Lopez. He loses a few pounds and gets a decent haircut and he thinks he is Freddie Prinze. If he makes that stupid ass face and licks his lips one more time.........Katy Perry?? Yeah, a flavor of the month song touching on a trendy topic and getting married to an even less talented hack. Ok I am done venting.

Cummings must have a thing for blue characters, first Nightcrawler and now a smurf. I bet he's looking for a role in the avatar sequel as well.
Never really cared for the smurfs as a half hour cartoon, so not sure a movie is really my thing.

Grouchy Smurf should just be called Latino Stereotype Smurf.

So does this mean the movie will end with Smurfette leading the Smurfs in a medley of her songs with "Smurf" replacing words in the titles?

"Smurfing Up in Vegas", anyone? "I Kissed a Smurf"? "Ur So Smurf"? "Smurfing of You?"

*sigh*

I LOOOOOVE Katy Perry. She really gave it to that moron on American Idol.

Either way, I'll see this because of the nostalgia, because I love animation, and because I'm a sucker for the Smurfs.

really? smurfs?

hollywood is really grasping at straws. and the aweful thing about this is the execs will be laughing all the way to the bank while the average movie-goer will be frowning as they exit the cinema. Smurfs??? really??? for the love of God people, dont be drones and make this bad idea another blockbuster. and i know i will get chewed out for this but someone has to tell the american people that they are getting duped.

Ok so far

I'll admit, I mildly enjoyed Alvin and the Chipmunks, even though they raped the Witch Doctor song. So I'm expecting the same type of movie with the Smurfs. I'm glad to see they got Jonothan Winters. And NPH could be a great addition. But George Lopez as Grouchy? And I don't remember Gutsy Smurf, anyone else? I guess since the director and Lopez worked together on BHC, he wanted Lopez for this one. I used to like George Lopez, I just don't see any appeal coming from him anymore. We'll

We'll just wait and see, but I don't know how I'll like Grouchy having a Latino accent. As far as Katy Perry, she's hot, so she can do whatever she wants!
