Steve Carell Goes Gru on 'Ellen' for 'Despicable Me 2'

There are only so many clever ways for a real-life actor to promote an animated movie character because, with all due respect to the trials of voice-work, most of the real heavy lifting is done by the animation crew. But this week Steve Carell raised the bar quite a bit for his fellow tongue-lending thesps by appearing on "Ellen" as a rather convincing human variation of his "Despicable Me 2" cartoon counterpart Gru.

Pixar Announces 'Finding Dory' Will Hit Theaters In 2015

Buena Vista Buena Vista

The moment an entire generation of film fans has who have just kept swimming since 2003 is here, as Pixar announced today that the sequel to their smash hit "Finding Nemo" will be called "Finding Dory" and will hit theaters on November 25, 2015.

And star Ellen DeGeneres, who voiced Dory in the original movie, couldn't be happier.

"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," DeGeneres said in a press release. "I'm not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating 'Toy Story 16.' But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It's got a lot of heart, it's really funny, and the best part is — it's got a lot more Dory." Get More »

9 Actors Whose Voices Are Too Distinct For Animation

The Croods DreamWorks

Doing an animated film must be an absolute blast for an actor. Show up in your pajamas. No time in hair and makeup. Don't shave your fu manchu. All that the film's producers need is your voice — your sweet, golden, $20-million-a-picture pipes.

For some actors, however, that's a problem. It's no one's fault; in fact, it's often a testament to their on-screen success with other endeavors. But there are a certain group of thespians whose voices are just too damn distinct to hide behind a cartoon character. They might deliver a fine performance, but it just doesn't quite work because we all know their voice so well. Get More »

This Happened: Amanda Seyfried Dresses as a Frog and Raps


Note to self: What happens in Tokyo, does not stay in Tokyo. Amanda Seyfried found that out during her appearance on "Ellen" yesterday afternoon. Thanks to some serious sleuthing, DeGeneres had discovered that Seyfried and her "Les Miserables" co-stars had gone out for a night of karaoke while they were in Japan for a press tour. "So what?" you ask. Big whoop.

Well, dear friends, Seyfried admitted that she not only took her turn at the mic after a few rounds of sake, but that she was dressed as a frog at the time. Yes, we said she dressed as a frog. Naturally the talk show host happened to have a giant frog head handy so the 27-year-old starlet could reenact this special moment for a national TV audience. Get More »
