Katy Perry and George Lopez lend Neil Patrick Harris their voices in The Smurfs

Is Katy Perry still cool? I can’t keep up with pop singers anymore, one minute they’re hot, the next they’re cold. See what I did there? Anyway, Katy Perry, George Lopez and Alan Cumming will all be voicing Smurfs in the upcoming film adaptation of THE SMURFS. The film already stars Neil Patrick Harris as the lone live-action character cast so far. But what’s more exciting for long time Smurfs fans is that Jonathan Winters will also be doing voice work in the film as the one and only Papa Smurf. Winters voiced the character in the original cartoon show.
I don’t think the addition of any of these voices makes me any more excited for the film, but what do you think the odds are that Katy Perry (as Smurfette) will burst into song at one point in the film? And George Lopez as Grouchy Smurf could make for some good lines, but Alan Cumming as Gutsy Smurf (side note: who?) doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.
