Actor Will Ferrell is auctioning a cameo appearance in his latest film to raise money for the Cancer For College foundation. Founded by Craig Pollard, Ferrell’s friend from university and cancer survivor, the charity provides college scholarships to current and former cancer patients.
Online bidding opens at $5,000 on September 17, and the auction runs until September 26. The winner will visit the set of Step Brothers in October and appear in a scene. The movie, due out next year, stars Ferrell and John C. Reilly as the spoiled sons of single parents who become competitive stepbrothers when their parents marry.
Ferrell says the brief appearance is a “perfect Christmas present for your son or daughter. It is the surefire way to win the parent of the year award. Support this amazing cause, by buying them me.”
The winner of the auction will be announced the day after bidding ends.
Last year Ferrell took part in a golf tournament supporting the same charity.
