(Newser) – Dustin Hoffman has undergone early cancer surgery and plans to continue his film career without a hitch, his rep tells People. "It was detected early and he has been surgically cured," she says. "Dustin is feeling great and is in good health." The rep divulged no details on Hoffman's illness, but said the 75-year-old Oscar winner will receive preventative treatments recommended by his doctor. Hoffman wrapped on Jon Favreau's Chef last month, and plans to star in Roald Dahl's Esio Trot alongside Judi Dench this fall.
