Smurf Movie Casting News: Gargamel Meets...Project RunwayAD Lynn
Once again, The Smurfs movie. As promised, I’ve been keeping track of all things smurf, and practically whooped with joy at the latest development. No, not the news (and pictures! left) about Hank Azaria playing Gargamel. That’s old (droopy white) hat by now. The newest development involves the casting of one of the other live-action roles in The Smurfs. The part is being played by one of reality TV’s most beloved stars.
Tim Gunn, of Project Runway, has been cast as a cosmetics company executive in the film.
This begs the question: What do smurfs have to do with cosmetics? Is there a scandal involved? Is an unethical cosmetics conglomerate testing out lipstains on smurfs? Is blue face paint involved? Could Smurfette be in on it?
Yes, I have an unnatural passion for smurfs. I smurf the smurfs and also the smurf movie. Is that so bad? I also find Tim Gunn smurfpletely smurfarific. Honestly, the way this cast is shaping up, even smurf-neutral moviegoers should find it worth a viewing. As always, I’ll keep you updated as more Smurfs movie news arises.
