He made a career out of playing dark, intense roles but Hollywood veteran Robert De Niro says he feels less restricted doing comedy as he has more fun while performing.

The Oscar-winning actor is all set to reprise his role for the third time as the grumpy father-in-law Jack Byrnes in The Little Focker, Contactmusic reported.

Robert De Niro"We have fun. I enjoy it a lot. When you're doing comedy I have less restrictions or constrictions. You can cut something out or the director will say to try something else, you can be broad, there's more room for just having fun," said the 67-year-old actor.

The Taxi Driver star was also delighted that his old friend Harvey Keitel was cast in the film as a contractor hired by his character's hapless son-in-law.

"It seemed like a good thing for Harvey to be in it, everyone was okay with it. When you have different people with different working styles sometimes you have to get around that stuff and Harvey is one of my oldest, dearest friends. We had to get all that working, but it was good. It was terrific," he added.

Meanwhile, actor Ben Stiller claimed that he has already penned down the fourth Meet the Parents film, which he plans to begin filming in 2011 with comedian Will Ferrell.

"Will? Hopefully. We finished the script and hopefully we'll shoot it next year," Stiller said.
