UPDATE: "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm is joining Sandra Bullock in EVIL for the Minions movie. Hamm's animated character is inventor Herb Overkill, who is married to Bullock's fashionista villainness Scarlet Overkill. Hamm's dramatic turns as Don Draper and the doctor in Sucker Punch are balanced by the comedic characters he's played on "SNL," "30 Rock," and Bridesmaids.
Feb. 12, 2013 - Sandra Bullock, whose usually busy fighting crime in Miss Congeniality movies or upcoming Heat, will play the bad guy girl in Minions, the Despicable Me spinoff. Bullock will voice Scarlet Overkill, a supervillain fashionista. Minions establishes that the little helpers have been serving as henchmen for bad guys throughout history but in the 1960s (before they met Gru) they didn't have a master. They all fall into a depression so three of them set out to find a new employer through a competition, which is where they meet Scarlet Overkill. Minions is directed by Pierre Coffin (Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2) and Kyle Balda (The Lorax) and is scheduled to open Dec. 19, 2014. Despicable Me 2 opens this summer, July 3. Both movies are a Universal and Illumination Entertainment collaboration.
