Steve Carell On Gru's Reform, The Minions And His Co-Star In 'Despicable Me 2' Interview
Steve Carell, who plays the lead character Gru in 'Despicable Me 2', talks about the movie in an interview, discussing Minions, Gru's reform and working with Kristen Wiig.
I was watching the Minions and I realised that they are the Marx brothers', he muses. 'They are these physical comedy geniuses. They're comedic relief within a comedy.' On the subject of his formerly evil character Gru, he explains, 'He wants to be a good dad, he knows he has to put his evil ways behind him. he has a little bit of a dilemma career-wise because he can't be what he was but he can't deny who he is.' His main partner in crime in the movie is Agent Lucy Wilde who is played by Kristen Wiig. 'Kristen Wiig, for starters, is somebody who is, in my opinion, never not good', Steve says. 'She is always funny, she's always the best thing in anything that she does. I've been a fan since I first saw her on 'SNL'.'
