To be honest, I originally had not interest in the upcoming CG Smurfs movie, even when that first conceptual image leaked. But making Neil Patrick Harris the title character? Holy cow, that is awesome!
NPH a Smurf
I don't know who Smurfs: The Movie is being made for, but I expect the age demo ranging from eighteen to thirty-six have to be stoked. Neil Patrick Harris, who will long be remembered as Dr. Horrible and the scene involving him snorting a line of cocaine of a stripper's back out of the sunroof of a moving vehicle, has supposedly been cast for the movie. According to Deadline Hollywood:
Neil Patrick Harris has a TV-heavy resume. Now he's just landed the lead in Smurfs: The Movie for Sony. Harris won’t have to walk around as a blue-tinted Avatar, either. The Raja Gosnell-directed film is a mix of live action and animation, and Harris is the lead live action character. Filming begins in April, when he’ll be on hiatus from CBS' How I Met Your Mother.
