"I guarantee, if you’re a Smurf fan and you see this movie, you’ll see the Smurfs that you grew up with and you’ll see The Smurfs movie that you want," "The Smurfs" auteur Raja Gosnell ("Big Momma's House," "Scooby-Doo," "Beverly Hills Chihuahua") said on the eve of the hybrid live-action/CGI feature's release last year. And while that remains to be seen, since no one we know actually saw "The Smurfs," clearly it was the Smurfs movie for many audiences, as the picture went on to gross a whopping $563 million worldwide. Clearly nostalgia aimed at parents -- with kids that will like the picture regardless of whether they grew up with it or not -- should never be underestimated.

Last month, the plot for Larry David's upcoming improvised comedy was revealed, ending what was an unusual amount of secrecy for the creator of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm." At the time, the project still lacked a name and only had confirmed the casting of Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton and David himself. With HBO stepping in over the summer to release the film, the project is taking shape for a fall shoot and is putting together its cast, roughly about half of Hollywood.

Looks like some actors who should be and deserve to be doing much better things are going to buy themselves a nice vacation or perhaps put a down payment on a second or third house, as they've lined up roles in the inevitable "The Smurfs 2."

Nick Frost, JB Smoove, Joy Behar, Heather Morris, Josh Gad, Alan Tudyk, Kunal Nayyar & Alain Chabat Also Join The CastHere's the deal with Nicki Minaj. We don't get it. Her whole cartoony/sexpot image combined with tepid musical output makes us wonder why she's as popular as is. The other side of the coin is that she absolutely kills it on Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy with her memorable intro on "Dark Fantasy" and arguably one of the best verses on the whole album in "Monster" (next to Pusha T's turn on "Runaway). Regardless, Minaj voicing a character in an animated film? Yeah, it sort of makes sense even if her delivery may give your children nightmares.

Star's Brother Erran Baron Cohen To Compose The MusicMore or less everyone involved in long-running HBO comedy "Curb Your Enthusiasm" has done pretty well out of it outside of the day job: creator/star Larry David toplined a Woody Allen film (albeit a terrible one...) and bagged a supporting turn in "The Three Stooges," Jeff Garlin's become a Pixar stalwart second only to John Ratzenberger, while Cheryl Hines got to make her directorial debut on "Serious Moonlight." But perhaps the biggest breakout seems to be the actor who's behind one of the most seminal supporting characters on the show: J.B. Smoove, who's played Leon Black on the last couple of seasons of the sitcom.
