Time to get smurfed! We caught up with the 'Smurfs 2' cast in Las Vegas to talk about the new film, how it was working with the Smurfs and what their Smurf names would be!

It's Smurf time!

We've been feeling blue waiting for the new Smurfs 2, and it's finally here. We caught up with the cast in Las Vegas to chat about the new film, what it was like working with the little blue people and what their personal Smurf names would be.

"It's a few years later," says Jayma Mays. "And Smurfette has been kidnapped by Gargamel, who is in France," adds Neil Patrick Harris, "Then we are asked to save Smurfette, end Gargamel's reign and learn a couple lessons along the way."

The cast told us what it's like working opposite animated costars. "Sometimes we're looking at a big X [in place of the Smurfs]," Neil says. "It's very bizarre and technical, which makes our job even stranger." Hank Azaria told us what makes him feel nuts: "Weirdest though of all is actually doing scenes with the cat that's really there."

Since Smurfs are named after their personalities, we were curious to hear theirs. "Phillip," Hank tells us. "He'd probably like to fill things up." Neil named Jayma "Wide-eyed," and Jayma named Neil the cutest thing ever--check out the video (above) to find out!

Don't forget to catch Smurfs 2 in theaters on July 31.
