Casting call and character image sheds some light on THE SMURFS

We got our first look at THE SMURFS last year, with a leaked poster that looked pretty awful. Since then, I guess the little blue guys have been spending some time at the render farm because they're looking a lot less like cartoon characters and more like movie characters. In fact, I'd say their realism looks a bit creepy.

The picture comes from UGO and looks like something that would be used for a poster, though we might not see that any time soon since filming hasn't started and it's not due until 2011. Meanwhile, as if one Smurf-tastic news post wasn't enough, SpoilerTV got a hold of a casting call for the film, which you can read after the jump.

[GRACE] 26 - 35 years old.. a first-time expectant mother, she's faced with juggling both an overworked husband and, ultimately, a household full of Smurfs. Should be lovely, maternal and have good comedic energy.sptv050769..MAJOR SUPPORTING ROLE

[ODILE] Late 20's to mid-40's... Foreign: European (French, Spanish, Italian), British, Latin American, French Canadian, etc. A beautiful, charming (when she wants to be), high-powered executive. She runs a high-end French cosmetics company. Strong comedic ability essential. MAJOR SUPPORTING ROLE.

Makes you wonder how a wizard named Gargamel fits into a world with high-powered executives.
