Smurfs casting update: 'SNL' cast members and John Oliver join voice cast
Thanks to us, you won’t have to spend any time racking your brain in the middle of next summer’s Smurfs movie thinking “Who’s voice is that?” We’ve got you covered. Joining the cast that already includes Katy Perry, Hank Azaria, George Lopez, and Alan Cumming are Daily Show’s John Oliver, playing Vanity Smurf; Saturday Night Live‘s Kenan Thompson and Fred Armisen as Greedy Smurf and Brainy Smurf, respectively; The Office’s B.J. Novak as Baker Smurf; and comedian Jeff Foxworthy as Handy Smurf. They join Pee-wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens, who, as previously reported by Deadline.com, will play Jokey Smurf. Also lending their voices to the little blue creatures are Wolfgang Puck — playing none other than Chef Smurf — and veteran character actor Gary Basaraba as Hefty Smurf. Star Trek’s Anton Yelchin will voice Clumsy Smurf. The rumors that Quentin Tarantino and Michael Cera are joining the cast are not true.
Neil Patrick Harris and Glee‘s Jayma Mays play the expectant couple who run into the blue creatures in the middle of Central Park. Raja Gosnell (Beverly Hills Chihuahua) has started shooting Smurfs in New York City.
