Hank Azaria, Katy Perry join cast of The Smurfs

EW‘s Nicole Sperling must be over the moon and/or pissed off at a lot of her fellow journalists right now because it looks like almost every news site out there is reporting on her exclusive without giving her credit.

Over at their Hollywood Insider site, Sperling announced that her sources told her that Hank Azaria would be playing the human role of Gargamel in the live-action/animated adaptation of The Smurfs with Katy Perry taking on the voice of Smurfette, the lone female Smurf (if you discount the shark-jumping Sassette, which I do). She also added that “Glee” guidance counselor Jayma Mays would be playing the pregnant wife of Neil Patrick Harris’ previously announced Johan, both human characters.

While Sony Pictures declined to comment, Sperling went on to say that the Raja Gosnell-directed picture would start filming next month in Central Park.
