After reporting on the less than impressive test screenings of Meet The Parents: Little Fockers, Universal wanted to try to get Dustin Hoffman to reprise his role of Ben Stiller’s Dad in the sequel. It now turns out that Hoffman has agreed to film scenes for a series of pickup shots to improve audience satisfaction.

Hoffman joins the cast that also includes Stiller, Robert De Niro, Barbara Streisand, Teri Polo, Blythe Danner, Owen Wilson, Laura Dern, Jessica Alba and Harvey Keitel. 

The film is still set for a December 22nd release despite these reshoots.
