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

Robert De Niro, Blythe Danner and Teri Polo are joining Stiller's character GAYLORD FOCKER to return to their original roles in the much-anticipated comedy sequel, which will be helmed by returning director JAY ROACH.

Stiller recently expressed a strong desire to have Barbra Streisand cast as his mother in the movie, which already has a release date of 22 December (04). The role has yet to be filled.
