This week, fans of the "Despicable Me" franchise got a dose of good news and bad news. The bad news – Legendary actor Al Pacino has dropped out of the voice cast. The good news – Tr3s fave Benjamin Bratt will be the one replacing him!

If you ask us, the Bratt move may actually be for the best. The role in question is for a Latino villain named Eduardo, who we’d much rather see an ACTUAL Latino play.

Pacino reportedly left the production after some creative differences. And by the sound of things, he may have left the studio in quite a bind.

"Despicable 2" is set to come out in July, which means Benjamin will have a lot of work on his hands filling in the vocal gaps. But he’s certainly got a great support team to help him through it. Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig and Moises Arias will all be filling in "Despicable" voice roles too.
