Hoffman no Focker?

Nov. 20, 2009by: Paul Tassi

There's drama on the set of LITTLE FOCKERS, and it may result in Gaylord Focker being fatherless. EW is reporting that Dustin Hoffman may not be back to reprise his role as Stiller’s free lovin’ dad, Bernie. What’s the issue?

“There has been strife between Hoffman and the studio over the size of the part, the scheduling of the days on set and other difficulties. Hoffman had tentatively agreed to appear in what was to be a very funny cameo at the end of the film. That seems to have now fallen apart, due to either salary issues or scheduling problems, or both. The studio, Universal, declined to comment. At this point, we do know that Streisand still has a prominent role in the movie as Ben Stiller’s mother but alas, Papa Focker’s role is looking much more unstable.”

I mean, yeah it’s too bad, but with the addition of Laura Dern, Jessica Alba and Harvey Keitel to the cast, Hoffman’s departure may not really be that big of a deal. They’ll just say Bernie is at a conference somewhere, and we’ll promptly forget about him for the duration of the film as soon as Alba pops up onscreen.

Extra Tidbit: Ten bucks if you can tell me who plays Stillers wife (and wife-to-be) in the first two films without looking it up.

it's news to me that Hoffman and Streisand were even in this movie at all. I read an article on this site stating that it wasn't confirmed that they were in talks at all to be in it. I do think that Hoffman would be missed though! I for one like Hoffman, and he always brings something good to every role he's in.

Jesicca Alba is shit,

Are you saying you'd rather watch Jessica alba over Dustin Hoffman? One of the worst actresses ever over one of the best actors ever? Good job the Twilight review brings the bullshit meter to where it should be.

I think its a big deal. Hoffman was hilarious in the sequel and the only reason I mildly enjoyed it.

Don't know. Never saw any of those flicks.

As for Hoffman... screw'm. If it's scheduling, I can understand that, but money... fuck'm then. So sick of actors wanting a few thousand dollars more to just stand around waiting to work... I've made my own flicks, so I know what it's about.

Teri Polo's character was not married to GAYLORD, but was proposed to by him at the end of the film. PEACE!

Extra Tidbit: They weren't married in the first movie. The whole plot centers around him asking for her father's approval.
