Jon Hamm to lend his voice in Despicable Me spin-off titled Minions

From MAD MEN to MINIONS. What an interesting transition.

Jon Hamm has signed on to join Sandra Bullock in the DESPICABLE ME spin-off MINIONS.

Bullock will voice stylish supervillain Scarlet Overkill(what an incredible name!) with Hamm lending his pipes as her husband and inventor, Herb Overkill.

Here's the info that Deadline had on the story:

This spinoff establishes that Minions have existed since the beginning of time, in service of history’s most ambitiously evil villains. Through their lovable ineptitude, Minions have managed to thwart and ultimately destroy all of those bad guys. This story picks up in the 1960s, before they hench-ed for Gru. With no more super-villains to serve, the Minions fall into a collective depression and three of them set out to seek a new evil master. They wind up at a villain convention, where they compete for the right to be henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, whose Audrey Hepburn-like high style appearance belies her world domination ambition and her aspirations to become the world’s first female super-villain.

I really enjoyed DESPICABLE ME and love the minions so this will definitely be something I will want to check out.

MINIONS will release on December 16, 2014.

I loved Despicable Me, especially the minions. Jon Hamm has a distinguished voice that I think will service this film very well. I think having an actor like Hamm in this movie will service the storyline. It shows Dreamworks is taking this project seriously and not treating it like a cash cow.

It's not Dreamworks. It's Illumination Entertainment.

That casting's about as uninspired as Jason Segel in the first one....
