Hank Azaria - The Smurfs 2

Hank Azaria may not be a man you immediately recognise by name but I guarantee you’ve seen his work either on the screen or one of his multitudes of voices.

Hank is a man with many talents! He’s voiced dozens of characters on The Simpsons over the years and as well as all his work behind the camera, has an extensive filmography appearing on the screen too. We got to sit down with him at the Summer of Sony junket for his latest movie The Smurfs 2 where we talk about this career and how it has evolved into playing the character of Gargamel, the Smurfs arch nemesis.

We find out if he has a preffered role that he likes to play, where he finds the voices for all the characters that he portrays and whether he prefers to appear in front or behind the camera! We also get to find out where the voice of Gargamel originated from and Hank tells us about his surprise at just how well the original 2011 movie did.

The Smurfs 2 hits UK cinemas this coming Wednesday. We’ve got an interview with Neil Patrick Harris tomorrow so stay tuned for that one and if you missed our interviews with Director Raja Gosnell or Producer Jordan Kerner, click right this way!
