Despite initially being written out of the upcoming comedy Little Fockers, Dustin Hoffman will indeed be reprising his role in the Meet the Fockers sequel, EW has confirmed. His scenes come courtesy of a series of pickup shots Universal is adding to the film, including some opposite onscreen wife Barbra Streisand. Hoffman reportedly will be receiving a salary equivalent to what he would have received had he been cast in the first place.
UPDATE: Hoffman will be in four scenes, some indeed with Streisand, a studio source confirms. These were shot during one week of additional photography, after Hoffman had seen the movie and wanted to be a part of it. The source also confirms that the reason for Hoffman’s initial unavailability was not salary-related.
