Tim Gunn Cast in THE SMURFS Movie
Columbia Pictures announced today that fashion expert and “Project Runway” mentor Tim Gunn will join the cast of “The Smurfs Movie”. Gunn joins a rather large cast featuring Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria, and Sofia Vergara in live-action roles alongside the voice talents of Jeff Foxworthy, Alan Cumming, Katy Perry and many more.
Variety confirms Gunn’s addition to the picture, in which he will be playing an executive assistant at a major cosmetic company. The film is to revolve around the classic blue characters fleeing their home after Gargamel (played by Azaria) locates it in hopes of devouring them. Through some spatial occurrence, the Smurfs land in real-life New York City.
This will mark Gunn’s second big screen appearance, the first being the upcoming “Sex & the City 2”. Raja Gosnell is directing “The Smurfs Movie” which is currently shooting in New York and slated for release in August 2011.
