Neil Patrick Harris will star in The Smurfs movie
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I’m constantly amazed at the casting choices that are made on a daily basis in Hollywood. Sometimes you think a role is ridiculous and then it turns out great, but Neil Patrick Harris starring in a G-rated (probably) movie about The Smurfs is a head-scratcher. I don’t remember a blond, thirty-something adult having a part in the Smurfs cartoon. Granted, I only remember the Smurfs, that one dark-haired kid that carried a sword and the older, evil guy that wanted to eat/kill the Smurfs. Admittedly, my memories of the Smurfs are fuzzy at best, but I digress. The point is that of the characters I want to see NPH play, this probably isn’t one of them. To be fair, NPH is great in anything, so I’m sure he’ll do well in this.
The movie is a CGI-live action hybrid in the vein of ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS and is due to start shooting in April for a July, 2011 release date.
