Meet The Fockers: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dustin Hoffman has been cast as Ben Stiller's father in Universal Pictures' Meet the Fockers, the sequel to the 2000 comedy hit Meet The Parents.

"Fockers" is being directed by Jay Roach and produced by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Roach. Stiller, De Niro, Blythe Danner and Teri Polo are returning in their original roles.

The sequel sees Greg Focker (Stiller) and his fiancee, Pam Byrnes (Polo), thinking everything is hunky-dory now that Greg has won over his soon-to-be in-laws, Jack (De Niro) and Dina Byrnes (Danner). But that's before Pam's parents meet Greg's parents, the Fockers. The hyper-relaxed Fockers and the tightly wound Byrneses are mismatched from the start.
