Steve Carell: Career In Four Minutes

Steve Carell is once again lending his vocal skills to supervillain turned superdad, Gru, in Despicable Me 2 .

The sequel sees the reformed bad ‘un enjoying the quiet life at home with his trio of adopted daughters, having turned his back on the grand-scale criminal schemes with which he made his name. The arrival of Anti-Villain League agent Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) soon disrupts all that, though…

To celebrate the release of the film, we caught up with the ridiculously likeable Steve Carell for a Career In Four Minutes interview.

Watch the interview below to find out about: his early days as a TV comic, the film that got his own talent agency to notice him, the fun of making Anchorman and much, much more.
