Alan Cumming - Alan Cumming Predicts The Smurfs Will Be 'Huge'

Alan Cumming thinks the 'Smurfs' movie will be "huge".

The Scottish actor - who is portraying a new character named Gutsy Smurf in the forthcoming animated movie - has recently been recording for the film and believes it will be a big success because of the amount of people who remember the original cartoon.

He said: "You're just being funny and making up funny stuff. You actually can make up dialogue and they incorporate it. I'm sure it's going to be huge. People have got very fond memories of it. It's such a part of people's childhood."

The 45-year-old star came up with the voice for the character after seeing a drawing, and hopes he will be able to reintroduce Scottish words such as "numpty" - meaning stupid - to a wide audience.

He told Collider.com: "They give you a picture of it, and you just do a voice that suits the drawing. He's called Gutsy Smurf. I didn't know anything about it. I think he's a new one. He's got a kilt.

"I'm playing a Scottish Smurf, so I'm hoping to reintroduce some words. Numpty is a really good Scottish word that I'm saying quite a lot in the film. I hope to reintroduce it to society."

'The Smurfs' - which also features the voices of Neil Patrick Harris, Sofia Vergara and Anton Yelchin - is released in 2011.
