Katy Perry, Alan Cumming, George Lopez Join 'The Smurfs'

Yesterday the news broke that Neil Patrick Harris had joined the cast of "The Smurfs" as the live-action lead. Momentum is clearly building for the planned adaptation, as a few more have joined the cast as well, as voice actors.

Original cartoon voice actor Jonathan Winters (previously confirmed), George Lopez and Alan Cumming are all on board, while pop star Katy Perry is in talks, according to Variety. That's as strange a lineup as I've ever seen. It also basically confirms -- whether or not Perry ultimately lands the role -- that there's some plan for Smurfette (that's the role she's up for) to sing. Not sure how I feel about that, even if it is true to the cartoon.

Winters had previously been confirmed by UGO for the role of Papa Smurf. Lopez will lend his voice to Grouchy Smurf and Cumming will lend his to Gutsy Smurf. Raja Gosnell, who helmed both "Scooby-Doo" live action movies and the first "Big Momma's House," will direct.

I'd like to take a moment to restate something I said yesterday, after the NPH news broke: GIVE NEIL THE ROLE OF GARGAMEL! This is Dr. Horrible we're talking about. He can definitely handle the role of an evil, cat-loving, Smurf-eating sorcerer.

Who should fill out the rest of the "Smurfs" voice cast? Don't you agree that Neil Patrick Harris would make the perfect Gargamel?
