Famous for his method acting approach to film roles, Dustin Hoffman has confirmed that he will be taking on the role of Lassie in his new film.

In the film "Lassie takes Vegas", Hoffman will take on the role of the famous collie in the twelfth film of the canine's adventures.

The film sees Lassie take a roadtrip to Las Vegas with the character of Charlie Babbit (to be played by Tom Cruise), and use the famous mathematical ability of the collie to count cards at blackjack tables.

Hoffman will be donning a custom made suit in order to play the role, however his commitment to "understanding the character" has seen him spend the last 6 weeks in a boarding kennel in Santa Monica. He furthermore was spayed and has had a range of vaccinations.

His agent recently confirmed that he has had to rescue Hoffman from 3 different local dog pounds since he accepted the role.
