'Despicable Me 2' is almost here and what better way to promote the upcoming movie than have its star, 'Gru' show up on Ellen to talk about the film.

Steve Carell is probably my favorite comedic actor on TV today, and his latest appearance on Ellen just cements that thought.  With a bunch of cartoon sequels being made that shouldn't (see Monsters University) I was thrilled to see that 'Despicable Me 2' was coming.

I can't be sure, but I think this might be the first time that any voice actor has appeared on TV as the cartoon character they played.  Now will somebody please get the ball rolling on 'The Incredibles 2'?
