Jack Byrnes is the main antagonist in the Meet The Parents trilogy. He is played by Robert De Niro, who also played Max Cady, Don Lino and Fearless Leader.

Jack is the strict, conservative, hard-to-please, and very intimidating father of Pam Byrnes, and a retired member of the CIA. Pam's boyfriend, Greg Focker, very desperately tries to win Jack's approval, but suffers a seemingly endless string of mishaps and misunderstandings, causing Jack to view him as unworthy. They reconcile their differences, but butt heads several more times in the sequels, Meet The Fockers and Little Fockers. In the end, he just wants what's best for his family, which makes him an anti-hero.
