For all her years as a talk show show, Ellen DeGeneres experienced something brand new on Thursday’s show.
Steve Carell paid a visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and did his entire segment in character as Gru, the semi-reformed villain from the “Despicable Me” movie franchise. Carell hit the stage complete with Gru’s black coat, scarf, bald head, broad shoulders and long nose.
Amid a standing ovation from the audience, DeGeneres noted that she wasn’t sure where Gru’s accent was form.
“I’m from Albuquerque, New Mexico,” Carell, aka Gru, answered, before adding, “Don’t push this topic.”
“Gru” later fulfilled a dream, dancing in the audience where he performed his signature dance moves.
“Despicable Me 2” hits theaters on July 3.
Here’s the clip…
