As we learned from The Simpsons and The Smurfs, Hank Azaria is great at doing voices. Well now, he is using that gift on Sesame Street to teach Elmo about the word imposter. Gargamel did his best Grover and Cookie Monster, and he had our favorite ticklish Muppet fooled. In fact, his last one was so good; I was surprised that Elmo didn’t realize Hank was an imposter! Even I didn’t know he was an imposter, did you?
Jayma Mays was a guest on The Tonight Show yesterday and she told Jay Leno how she almost didn’t make it to the NBC show for her appearance. The Glee star explained that she had a really bad ear infection for the last week. It got so bad, she started to have blood come out of her ear and she thought her eardrum burst. So she went to the doctor, who told her he wasn’t sure if she had done that because there was so much blood. He sent the nurse in to drain her ear with some drops. As the RN did that she started to back away and ran to get the doctor. When he came in, the Smurfs actress thought maybe her brain was coming out and got very nervous. Turns out a bug had been living in her ear and when the nurse drained it, the drops drowned the bug releasing it from its new home.
So why did the bug decide to make her ear their home? It’s because her ears are so clean that lack of wax buildup gave the bug enough room to make her head its house. So the next time you grab your Q-Tip just remember this story.
Could you imagine how her Glee character, Emma Pillsbury, would react to this? Even worse than Ashton Kutcher did. He was more grossed out by it than she was.
The first full trailer is out for Smurfs 2, and I can’t wait to see it when it comes out on July 2nd. The first movie wasn’t perfect, but it was a lot of fun. It looks like this one will be even better because it will focus more on the Smurfs and less on the humans!
The first trailer is out for the second Smurfs movie and I can’t wait to see it when it comes out in July! The first movie was fun, but the second one looks like it is something to Smurf about!
When I was younger I collected Smurfs, now I totally want to collect Naughtys and I hope Sony releases them for us all to enjoy!
OK Go recorded the theme song for The Muppet Movie and today they released the music video for it. I love OK Go and I love The Muppets, but I hate that song and video. It is a huge mess of crap that looks like Animal put together. Hopefully the movie will be better than music video.
Yesterday Harrison Ford was on Conan O’Brien and he told the TBS host that his wife Calista Flockhart cheated on him over the weekend and took their son to see The Smurfs. Hans Solo stayed home alone because his movie Cowboys and Aliens was in box office battle with the little blue guys and his film barely beat the little white pants off of them. So obviously Indiana Jones was not happy that his wife paid to see the movie with their son and they got into his movie for free, and contributed their weekend totals. So Conan let him take his rage out Papa Smurf and he Smurfed the competition. Morale of the story, don’t Smurf with Harrison Ford!
Today starts the box office showdown between Cowboys & Indians and The Smurfs; and Olivia Wilde is taking down her little blue competition in the true Old West style. During her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live the House actress revealed how she plans on having her movie win the weekend and she is not going to go down easily.
I think what we all learned from that video is you don’t Smurf with Olivia Wilde.
The Smurfs are getting a computer animated movie next August. So far we have seen Gargamel and Azreal filming next year’s blockbluster and now thanks to USA Today we are finally seeing The Smurfs!!! I think they look cool, but I don’t fully love them. Unlike how much Hank Azaria looks like Gargamel and the cat looks like Azreal, there is something about these little blue guys that doesn’t look like the toys and the cartoon I grew up with. Maybe tomorrow when I see the trailer and I see them moving, I will change my opinion. I just hope it doesn’t change up how much I want to see this movie. UPDATE: Here is the teaser trailer and I do mean teaser…
Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara who is also starring in The Smurfs movie Tweeted this picture of Gargamel and Azrael filming a scene for their upcoming movie. I so love that they are using a real cat to play Azrael and not using a robotic one. For some reason that gives the movie so much more street cred to me. Well that and how much Hank Azaria looks like Gargamel. Seriously isn’t that picture really cool. Only problem is when was the last time a kitty chose bread over a chicken leg? I know my pussy prefers meat over yeast!
Now when are we going to see The Smurfs? I can’t wait to see those little blue guys come to life when the movie comes out next July.
As you know they are making CGI/live action film for The Smurfs. So ten days ago I posted pictures of Hank Azaria as Gargamel in the 2011 movie and I wondered where his sidekick Azreal was. Well now we don’t have to wonder any more because Sofia Vergara Tweeted this picture of the cute little pussy that is playing the famous cat! Seriously how awwwdorable is the kitty? I can’t believe how calm the cat is on the trash can like that in NYC, if it were my cat she would be trying to find a place to hide.
BTW the Modern Family star also Tweeted a picture of herself with one of the other stars from the film.
Finally part of me is excited for the film because I loved The Smurfs when I was growing up. But then the other part of me wishes it was just and animated flick and not a CGI/live action one.
