Laura Dern Joins The Fockers

Laura Dern is going to teach those little Fockers a lesson. According to THR, Dern will join Meet The Parents vets Ben Stiller, Teri Polo, Robert DeNiro, Blythe Danner and Owen Wilson in the third film.

Dern will play the headmistress at the kids’ school while another newcomer, Jessica Alba, will play a pharmaceutical rep whose heavy dose of sex appeal makes the male characters experience some calamitous side effects. After The Eye and Awake it’s hard to be thrilled by Alba’s casting but Dern on the other hand can do no wrong. I’m Jurassic Park obsessed and therefore completely biased, but I think Dern is a great addition to the cast.

The article also notes that Little Fockers is still just a working title and could be subject to change. It’s short, sweet and to the point; why change it?
