    Two-time Oscar-winning actor Dustin Hoffman has been treated for cancer successfully, his rep Jodi Gottlieb told People. “It was detected early and he has been surgically cured,” she said. “Dustin is feeling great and is in good health.” The 75-year-old will undergo preventative treatments, as recommended by his doctor. Plans to star in the feature film, Boys Choir, have not been affected; production will begin later this year or early 2014.
