It’s Hank Azaria as Gargamel!

Hank Azaria shaved his head to play Gargamel in the Smurfs movie and now we are seeing what he looks like in the role. He really looks like the evil Smurf hating human we have grown to known in the cartoon. Plus we know what happened to the hair he shaved off…they made his eyebrows out of it.
Seriously how good does he look trying to scare the people of New York City for the movie?
BTW I have one question…Where is Azrael? Gargamel needs his feline buddy!

Smurfs the movie triology?
November 27th, 2006 under Smurfs. [ Comments: none ]

Producer Jordan Kerner (“Charlotte’s Web”, “George of the Jungle 2”) gave Moviehole a bit of an update on his forthcoming projects today, including the feature film version of “The Smurfs”. “It’s a 3-D/CG Smurfs”, said Kerner. “You just can’t make those guys live – it’d be a little weird, but a 3D Shrek world of them – that’s fantastic.” Kerner says he has been researching the popular 80s cartoon extensively. “Having seen all 234 episodes of the show, numerous times, Herb Ratner and I have been working really hard at looking where all the holes were in the episodes – ya’know, like all of a sudden another woman appears, it’s not just smurfette – and what we’ve done is we’ve plugged all those holes in a trilogy of three movies, and we reveal things as we go along”. “They’re all so very protective of [The Smurfs], so it took me five years of negotiation to get the rights. And then, they were very uncertain about what story we wanted to tell – we weren’t going to tell them until we had the rights, either. Then we got the rights on everyone’s faith that they also had an ability to veto, and presented them with the treatment. They just loved it. To be told that they loved it – not just liked it – and to be told that [creator] Peyo would’ve loved it, is a huge blessing and a great thing to have happen”. The “Smurfs” trilogy will be “the animated Lord of the Rings – through the world of these idiots. Because they’re sweet characters but they’re goofs. It’s a comic version, but still very heartfelt, version of Lord of the Rings – though not literally Lord of the Rings, but an epic story like that.” The fan favourite to voice the character of Gargamel seems to be John Lithgow. “Very interesting”, smiles Kerner. “I love John Lithgow”. Gargamel’s back-story is going to be fully examined in the film trilogy. We’ll learn “[more] about Gargamel and Smurf Soup and how all that began and what really goes on in that castle. What his backstory really was. There’s an all-powerful wizard… there’s all sorts of things that get revealed as we go along”.

How cool would that be?
