Hollywood continues to mine old '80s properties for 21st century reboots, even the most all-but-forgotten franchises such as "ALF," according to Heat Vision.
"ALF" (which stands for Alien Life Form, as explained by Max Wright's Willie Tanner in the pilot episode) followed the adventures of a furry wisecracking alien who came to live with a suburban family after crash-landing into their garage. Get More »
The little blue people have recruited three new big people for their next big-screen adventure.
Christina Ricci, Brendan Gleeson and J.B. Smoove will soon be singing "La, la, la la-la-la" (at least in their heads) as they've signed on to appear in the currently untitled sequel to last summer's box office hit, "The Smurfs," according to Heat Vision.
The plot of "The Smurfs 2" (which is what we'll call it until advised otherwise) hasn't been revealed yet, though certain Smurfy character details have emerged with the casting news. Ricci will be providing the voice of Vexy, an evil version of Katy Perry's Smurfette (we think we remember that episode …?), while Smoove will voice a "naughty" new character named Hackus and Gleeson will play Victor Doyle, the stepfather of Patrick Winslow (Neil Patrick Harris).

Tom Green can claim all he wants that he invented planking back in 1994. We all know the truth.
Obviously, it was Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze who kicked off the trend back in 1987 in "Dirty Dancing." And they weren't the only ones.
We've spotted planking in a number of recent movies from "The Smurfs" to "Green Lantern." Oh, and Edward Cullen? Yeah, he's been known to plank in a certain meadow here and there.
Look, we get that some of these characters may not have known what they were doing, but an accidental plank is still a plank, right?
It ain't easy being green, but being blue doesn't seem like such a bad deal -- just ask the Smurfs.
The film adaptation of the beloved cartoon, released in theaters on July 29, has already grossed over $78 million in the U.S. and $135 million internationally, beating out big-budget action hits "Cowboys and Aliens" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" this past weekend.
Apparently the numbers have studio execs convinced; despite dismal reviews from critics, Sony has decided to to try to their luck again with a sequel to the hit family comedy. Get More »
When it comes to former child stars, few have reinvented themselves as wildly as Neil Patrick Harris has. Getting his start in showbiz at 16 on the TV series "Doogie Howser, M.D." before a brief hiatus from the public eye, Harris now soaks up acclaim on the small screen, big screen AND the stage.
He's won raves for hosting the Tonys and performing on Broadway, helped spin CBS's "How I Met Your Mother" into a hit as ladies' man Barney Stinson, and showed just how potent (and hilarious) a mere cameo can be in two "Harold and Kumar" movies.
Now he's doing one for the kiddies, playing the lead human role in "The Smurfs," a mixture of live action and CGI that finds the actor starring alongside lovable tiny blue creatures. We got his Smurf name and more. Get More »
Take a closer look at the most diabolical villains ever captured on film and you may notice some fur poking out of the corner of the screen. Supervillains need love, too, and though they have little use for human beings -- aside from as expendable henchmen -- they save their cuddly, maternal side for their devoted pets. And through this special kind of unconditional love, the supervillains reveal their vulnerability and, ironically, their own humanity in the process.
Among these vile critters is Gargamel’s cat Azrael, who will soon get the CGI treatment in "The Smurfs" reboot, opening July 29. We present our list of Azrael and other beloved beasts, arranged from the most innocent companion to the most menacing accomplice.

As glamorous as Sofia Vergara's recent roles have been -- as Ed O'Neill's sassy on-screen wife Gloria on ABC's "Modern Family" and as Odile, a cosmetics executive in "The Smurfs" (not to mention her lady villain role in this week's "Three Stooges") -- we mustn't forget that the Colombian beauty had a very unglamorous introduction to Hollywood nearly a decade ago.
Before winning Emmy nominations, cosmetic contracts and national acclaim for her work on America's favorite comedy, Sofia Vergara was getting her toes sucked by Stanley Tucci. But let's start at the beginning. Get More »
