reubens_lThe comeback of Paul Reubens continues. He has been set to lend his voice to play “Jokey” Smurf in The Smurfs, the life-action/CGI 3D film that Raja Gosnell will direct for Sony Pictures Animation. He joins Neil Patrick Harris, George Lopez, Katy Perry, Alan Cumming, Sofia Vergara, Hank Azaria, Jonathan Winters, Fred Armisen, Anton Yelchin, and Jayma Mays.

The job comes after Reubens completed a Los Angeles stage run of The Pee-wee Herman Show, reprising a character which at one time was as big with the Saturday morning kiddie crowd as The Smurfs.
