Supercompressor – Kristen Wiig Talks ‘Despicable Me 3’ & Female Comedic Influence
Supercompressor — Kristen Wiig Talks ‘Despicable Me 3’ & Female Comedic Influence. The funniest people I know are women, said Kristen Wiig in a recent interview with IN STUDIO WITH MATT AND NICK on SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio. I don’t know why that is — there just seems to be so many more funny women than men. But it doesn’t have anything to do with their gender, it has something to do with their minds.

It’s been revealed that actor Will Arnett will return as Mr. Perkins, a bank worker who will be promoted to president of the Bank of Evil. It hasn’t been revealed if Mr. Perkins is at all related to Silas Ramsbottom and their similar appearance could be a sign of things to come in Despicable Me 3 . A search on IMDb finds that Will Arnett has at least three projects scheduled for 2017, with only one other being a voice role ( The LEGO Batman Movie ). As such, it would appear he’ll be returning in Despicable Me 3 , adding even more evidence that his character will interact with Silas Ramsbottom somehow.
