Callback Handlers

Hello All,
Is there a way to pass in extra parameters to a custom callback handler and fetch it back in the custom login module? My code is as follows:

LoginContext cntx = new LoginContext("test", new MyCallBackHandler(username, password, param1, param2));

MyLoginModule.java:
((MyCallbackHandler)callbackHandler).getParam1()
The above call throws a classcastexception because callbackHandler is an instance of SecureCallbackHandler which is an inner class of LoginContext.

Is there any other way of accomplishing what I am trying to do here?

Thanks in advance.
