Ask Neil Patrick Harris why he's taking on the lead in Sony's Smurfs: The Movie and he'll give you an honest answer. "Why?" Neil Tweeted, "Smurfs are rad."
The star of How I Met Your Mother has confirmed his role in the new live-action/CGI-animated film based on the cartoon series, The Smurfs, E! News reports.
Shooting for Neil's live-action part of the film stars next month while HIMYM is on hiatus.
But make no mistake, this is no minor role for Neil.
He'll be "Tra la la la la la-ing" his whole way to the Smurf village — he's happy to have this role!
"I'll do my smurfiest to represent well," Neil Tweeted.
