Jessica Alba Might Be Dealing with Some Little Fockers

Recently we saw Jessica Alba in the trailer premiere for the ensemble romantic comedy Valentine's Day. And while there's no doubt she's still got the looks and a bit of charm to keep some of us interested, the trailer confirmed that it's another in a long line of generic and dull career choices for Alba. She just might have a chance to turn that all around as Variety reports that Alba is in talks to join the third installment of the Meet the Parents films which as far as we know is still being called Little Fockers. Perhaps she'll get the chance to show her more comedic side which unfortunately didn't ever show up in The Love Guru.
Alba's role doesn't sound all that great as "an attractive pharmaceutical rep whose looks wreak havoc on male characters in the story,” but apparently this is a key role alongside the film's stars like Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro. Paul Weitz (About a Boy, American Pie, Cirque du Freak) is directing Little Fockers since Jay Roach (director of the Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers) wasn't up for a third go-round in the director's chair. Hell, I don't even know if I'm up for a third round of Fockers. I feel like the concept has run its course and while Dustin Hoffman and Barbara Streisand brought some fun to Meet the Fockers, I just feel like another will be overkill. Thoughts?
