Steve Carell to voice 'Despicable'

Illumination Entertainment topper Chris Meledandri has kicked off his Universal Pictures-based family
film unit with "Despicable Me," a 3-D CG-animated film that has Steve Carell voicing the title character.

Jason Segel, Kristen Wiig, Will Arnett, Danny McBride, Russell Brand, Jemaine Clement ("Flight of the
Conchords"), Jack McBrayer ("30 Rock") and Julie Andrews are providing the other lead voices. The film
will be released in 2010.

Carell's title character is a deplorable man known as Groo who masterminds the mother of all heists when
he plots to steal the moon. Egged on by an evil mother (Andrews), Groo finds one obstacle in his way: a
trio of orphan girls who temporarily come under his care and won't leave.
