Neil Patrick Harris Stars In “Smurfs: An XXX Parody”

The last time someone told me to prepare myself for something big and magical, they weren’t talking about tiny blue dudes in white caps! Neil Patrick Harris has just unveiled the first teaser trailer for The Smurfs, a 3-D update of the popular 1980s cartoon.

As you may have guessed, the title of this post is a joke, and NPH will not be donning any funny white hats for the flick. He’ll be costarring alongside Glee‘s Jayma Mays as the lead live-action characters. They’ll be joined by an unlikely cast of voice actors, including Katy Perry, Paul Reubens, Alan Cumming and Jeff Foxworthy.

We’re not really sure why we’re posting about this, other than the incredible “WTF” factor. But isn’t it interesting that the openly gay actor’s first leading film role will be alongside a bunch of computer-generated blue people? I guess it’s kind of like Avatar. Only not really at all.
