Will Ferrell Movie Role Auctioned for $47,100

By RobotGod     Sep 27, 2007 in Entertainment
A lucky 10-year-old boy will now get a chance to play an extra in Will Ferrell's new movie after his father bought the role in a cancer-charity auction for more than $47,000.
breitbart reports that the money will go to the Cancer for College foundation which is run by a fraternity brother of Ferrell's at the University of Southern California.
The $47,100 high bidder is a man from Dallas who asked to remain anonymous. The opening bid was only $5,000.
"Winning this auction means a lot to me on a very personal basis," the winner said in a statement released by the foundation. "I lost my mother to ovarian cancer a few years ago, so I feel fortunate that my 10-year-old and I are able to participate in an event involving Cancer for College and Will Ferrell."
Ferrell was the one who came up with the idea of auctioning off a non-speaking part as an extra in his new movie, "Step Brothers."
"We are overwhelmed with the response and generosity to the auction," Ferrell said. "This money will help so many young people with their dreams of attending college."
The lucky winner will meet Ferrell on Friday at the 14th annual Cancer for College golf tournament dinner in Temecula. After that he will join the actor on the movie set next month.
This kind of thing just makes you feel good. What a genuine and good guy Ferrell is. This is what Hollywood should aspire to. We need more like him.
