Hoffman to rejoin Fockers?

The veteran actor played Ben Stiller’s onscreen dad in the second film, 2004’s Meet The Fockers, but decided not to return for the upcoming third installment, Little Fockers, which revisits the characters from the first two films.

Stiller reprises his role in the new movie alongside Robert De Niro, Barbara Streisand and Owen Wilson, and now online rumours have emerged suggesting Hoffman will make an appearance in the film after all.

The movie was due for release last month (Jul10) but the launch date was pushed back until December (10), and Moviehole.net reports the delay was proposed to give producers time to film extra scenes with Hoffman.

The film is due to hit cinemas on 22 December (10).
