    Dustin Hoffman Says He Took 'Little Fockers' Gig For The "Back End" Money & 9 Other Things Learned

    Jessica Alba Denies Screenwriters Diss Comments, Ben Stiller Talks 'Zoolander 2,' & MoreFamily patriarch Jack Byrnes wants to appoint a successor. Does his son-in-law, the "male nurse," Greg Focker have what it takes? Yup, it's "Little Fockers," the third film in the "Meet The Parents" trilogy.
