Late last week, the rumor that Quentin Tarantino had been cast as Brainy Smurf in the upcoming Smurfs: The Movie spread across the internet after a comment made to MTV by Gutsy Smurf voice Alan Cumming. Both Tarantino's camp and Sony Pictures Animation have since squelched that rumor.

An article in Hero Complex, a Los Angeles Times blog, reveals some additional information about the Tarantino misinformation:
“There were conversations about it, but it didn’t work out,” says Hannah Minghella, president of Sony Pictures Animation, which is making the movie with a blend of live-action and animation. “Quentin is such a fanboy that it was part of the appeal.”

Minghella also notes that celebrities have been after these prime voice-over roles in the upcoming Smurf film:
“You have no idea,” Minghella said of the blue-in-the-face lobbying by agents who want their stars to be part of the revival.

We also now know that Kevin James (King of Queens) has been cast as Hefty Smurf, and that Hank Azaria's role as Gargamel is a live-action character, not a voice-over role as previously reported.

Update: Here's an article from TVSeriesFinale.com that wonders why the original cast isn't being included in the new film and has quotes from two of the original voice actors from The Smurfs series, Michael Bell (Handy Smurf), and Danny Goldman (Brainy Smurf).
