Al Pacino Leaves 'Despicable Me 2' Over Creative Differences He Never Had with 'Jack and Jill'

May 6, 2013


He shouted his way through Gigli, Jack and Jill, and Stand Up Guys, but at last Al Pacino has found a project creatively offensive enough to give him pause in Despicable Me 2. Deadline reports the actor and Universal have parted ways on the project, the studio confirming, "there were creative differences between us and Al Pacino, who had been cast as the voice of Eduardo in the film." Apparently Pacino wanted to act like Pacino, and Universal thought he would do something other than that, but now everyone is on the same page of Al Pacino's career.

With the film still set for a July 3 release, Universal wasted no time in finding a replacement, and now the character will be voiced by Benjamin Bratt. Hopefully your children enjoy reruns of Law & Order as much as they love how Scarface sounds.
