Receiving a standing ovation from the audience, Steve Carell came out in full Gru-garb on Ellen (he even had the nose) to promote Despicable Me 2. Always committed, he kept in character the whole time, really stressing that accent! DeGeneres, trying to figure out the accent, asked him where he was from and he responded, “I’m from Albuquerque, New Mexico.” Adding, “Don’t push this topic.”

The audience of mostly (entirely?) adults absolutely loved all of it, especially when Carell danced like his character. Some things are just nice and this will definitely put a smile on your face.

Despicable Me 2 comes to theaters July 3.
