Jessica Alba joining Little Fockers

Jessica Alba is close to locking down a role in Little Fockers, the third outing for Universal's money-spinning comedy franchise.

In what must surely be a stretch, she's playing a sexy woman - a pharmaceutical rep, in fact, who turns out to be a head-turner for the male characters.

The majority of the cast is returning - including Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro, plus Teri Polo and Dustin Hoffman for a tale that will revolve around Stiller's Gaylord Focker and wife Polo having kids.

Paul Weitz is set to direct John Hamburg's script in the next few months, and the undoubtedly high-larious hijacks should arrive later in 2010.
