Despicable Me with Steve Carell’s Unusual Accent

Posted on: July 13, 2010

We know that Shrek Forever After and Toy Story 3 have already gone, however, a new animated kid flick will be released this week. It is called Despicable Me. It tells the story about a guy Gru who is doing his best to be called the biggest bad guy in the world.

Steve Carell, TV and movie star, who is famous for such works as NBC’s The Office and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, was asked to provide the voiceover for the film’s supervillain who had an extremely unusual accent. The bizarre diction of Gru which can be characterized as pseudo-Eastern European accent, didn’t take the star months of fine-tuning. He says that that special speech was produced after minutes of inspiration.
Steve Carell shares with Liane Hansen, NPR’s reporter that he was always in that realm. Their creative team figured out that his speech sounded comical and evil at the same time. The star is really proud of its nonspecific, elusive quality. According to Carell, it would be difficult for everybody to determine what kind of accent he created.

Steve Carell smiles that his son John, who is six years old, is one of the biggest fans of his father’s accent. The kid is simply fascinated by the way his daddy pronounces “light bulb.”
