First Look: A Creepy Hank Azaria as Gargamel in The Smurfs
Until today, I honestly wasn't that excited for Sony's The Smurfs movie, even though it has an impressive cast. But after checking out these creepy/awesome photos of actor Hank Azaria (who also voices Moe and Chief Wiggum on The Simpsons) on set in full costume as the creepy live-action Gargamel, I'm now totally sold on this. The photos come from Splash News by way of ComingSoon and were shot on the streets of New York City, as the plot in the movie takes the lil' blue guys out of their peaceful village to the streets of the Big Apple. I'm already getting an Enchanted vibe from this and it's not even a Disney movie. So check these out!
In the 3D August 3rd, 2011 release, the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village and they tumble from their magical world into ours – in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down. In addition to Azaria as Gargamel, the cast of The Smurfs includes Neil Patrick Harris, Anton Yelchin, Jonathan Winters, Katy Perry, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, George Lopez, Paul Reubens, John Oliver, Kenan Thompson, B.J. Novak, Jeff Foxworthy & Wolfgang Puck. Stay tuned for more Smurfs news!
