Jon Hamm is set to lend his vocal talents to Despicable Me spin-off, Minions.

The Mad Men star is in talks to voice one of the lead roles in the upcoming animated 3D feature, which will be directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, reported Deadline.

Sandra Bullock has already signed on to the movie, where she will be the main villain.

Details about the movie are under wraps, although a December 2014 release is on the cards.

Jon, who has reprised his role as advertising executive Don Draper in the latest series of Mad Men, is no stranger to voice work having lent his voice to Shrek Forever After, The Simpsons and Family Guy.
