The marketing push for Despicable Me 2 is in high gear and yesterday, Steve Carell went the extra mile during his appearance on the Ellen show. Instead of just coming in for a normal appearance, he showed up in full make-up as the film’s main character, Gru.

Despicable Me 2 stars Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Al Pacino, Miranda Cosgrove and Russell Brand.

Despicable Me 2 opens in 3D on July 3rd.
