Despicable Me’s Gru appears on Ellen

Steve Carell appears in character on chat show.

Gru on Ellen

Steve Carell, voice of Despicable Me super-villain Gru, appeared as the character in person on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The appearance was to promote Carell’s second outing as Gru in Despicable Me 2. For those who haven’t seen Despicable Me, this is undoubtedly the most bizarre interview ever seen on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. However, with Despicable Me making more than $540 million in 2010 to become the 10th-biggest animated motion picture in U.S. history, this shouldn’t be a problem.

Watch Gru’s appearance on the show:

Despicable Me 2 stars voice acting talent from Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Al Pacino, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Elsie Fisher, Russell Brand, Ken Jeong, Steve Coogan and Nasim Pedrad. With Carell suiting up as Gru in real life, it begs to wonder who would play one of Despicable Me’s famous minions in real life… Warwick Davis, anyone?

Despicable Me 2 is in UK cinemas from 28th June 2013.
