Al Pacino out of 'Despicable Me 2,' replaced by Benjamin Bratt
Because when you can secure the voice talents of the Bratt-ster, you have to do it
Seriously....who cares one little bit.
These guys are actors. Nothing more, nothing less.
What ever the real reason is that Pacino walked .,,,It is a animated film and no amount of "over" acting a part would be seen on screen. Only the animation folks can bring the part to life on screen. Voicing the part can be redone in a short time and the nuance of the actor can be replaced rather easily by computer magic in to days movie making.
Bratt will be super as the villain and his voice and actions can be placed smoothly into the film.
Time has come to let the PrimaDonnas know that they can be and will be and should be replaced ASAP when they begin to act like a horses behind. There are way to many very talented actors today and to have a jerk on set is no longer needed.
if Pacino doesn't want the part...Fine... His loss
Benjamin Bratt will do a fine job with the character.... and he'll he smiling all the way to the bank...
Is this what passes for journalism these days?
Could Pacino have bristled when he found out his famous countenance was not to have graced the silver screen, but replaced by the crudely-drawn avatar of a CGI puppet?
Corwin Nuese should be ashamed...ridiculously biased against Pacino without any real knowledge of what happened. Why would the hitlist allow such drivel to be submitted is a more important question than the foolish ones asked here.
IT IS A FRIGGIN CARTOON, WHO CARES ABOUT A FRIGGIN CARTOON, ANYONE CAN BE THE VOICE, WHY DO THESE OVER PAID SO CALL ACTORS GET AN AWARD FOR TALKING, IT IS A CARTOON, TAKES ONLY THE ANIMATORS TO MAKE IT, AND ANYONE CAN BE THE VOICE, BS IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH, THEY CAN'T MAKE A MOVIE BUT A CARTOON, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IN A CARTOON.
