Javier Bardem may be a little too busy as the chief nemesis in Daniel Craig’s upcoming James Bond film Skyfall, as the massive actor has had to scrap plans to to work in the sequel to Despicable Me.

A few months ago, Bardem was in talks to voice El Macho, a foreign match to Steve Carrels character, Gru, complete with his own trio of orphans, except his were boys of course.

The film is meant to highlight the parenting problems the two evil masterminds have with their adopted children, but now it seems that Bardem will not be loaning his voice out for any expected smackdown shenanigans for the sequel.
There are no other details as to why the oscar-winning actor has left the project, and its a shame that his natural, rich voice won’t be yelling out any presumed luchadore moves from the script.

However, if you think you can fill the void that Bardem has left behind, then good news, as the part is once again up for grabs. The film is still set for a July 3 2013 release, and the loss of Bardem should have very little effect on the current schedule for Despicable Me 2.
