If you needed any further clue that Al Pacino's career has gone down the tubes, he has just joined Despicable Me 2. Deadline reports that the Godfather will be making his first animated movie and voicing the villain. Universal Pictures and Illumination Ent. are overseeing the sequel to the 2010 film, which made $543 million on a $69 million budget. Not much is known about his role, but he will be joining Steve Carell as Gru.
Pacino has had starred in such films as Scarface, Heat, and Dog Day Afternoon. Despicable Me was okay but did not warrant a sequel. At least he has a great voice, which is important for an animated film. What are your thoughts on this news?
