Dustin Hoffman Out Of “Fockers”

Dustin Hoffman is looking unlikely to return in “Little Fockers”, the third installment of the “Meet the Parents” popular comedy franchise reports Entertainment Weekly.

Hoffman was said to have a brief cameo as Bernie Focker, father of Ben Stiller’s Greg Focker, but Hoffman was reportedly unhappy with the size of his role. That, plus some scheduling difficulties and salary issues which have arisen, means Hoffman may essentially opt out of the film.

Barbara Streisand however will return as his wife Roz with a more prominent role in the film. Universal and Hoffman’s reps didn’t comment.
