Steve Carell as Gru

During Comic-Con in 2010, Will Ferrell went the extra mile to dress up like his character Megamind from the DreamWorks Animation film, and now his Anchorman: The Legend Continues co-star Steve Carell has done the same thing. Appearing on "The Ellen Show" with Ellen DeGeneres, Carell appeared in a full costume as Gru from Despicable Me and the forthcoming sequel. Just looking at Carell like this is hilarious because of the strange proportions of Gru as an animated character, but seeing him dance around the show and stay in character is just laugh-out-loud funny. Things like this need to happen more often.

Here's Steve Carell in character as Gru from Despicable Me on "The Ellen Show" (via YouTube):

Despicable Me 2 is directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud and written by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul, who all held the same positions on the original film. Steve Carell is reprising his role as the despicable Gru (along with his three adopted daughters) with Al Pacino voicing his nemesis for the sequel. Plenty of minions will be back and wackier than ever with Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment bringing the film to theaters on July 3rd, 2013 in 3D, just in time for the summer holiday. Good stuff?

Ahhhh steve carrell class act that guy, if I didnt know any better I would think he started his career in the 90s crew of SNL, just that type of entertainer.

So much respect for Steve Carell except for his one flop - "seeking a friend for the end of the world"
