Comedian Steve Carell held a special screening of his latest movie, Get Smart, for charity last night.
The 45-year-old held the screening at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to benefit the Zachary Carson Brain Tumor Fund, a special initiative named after a teenager Carell met on the set of his show ‘_The Office’_ last year through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Tickets to the screening cost movie-goers $100, and included the chance to take part in an auction featuring items such as the opportunity to have Carell record a voice mail message.
The fund was set up after 19-year-old Zachary Carson died from diffuse pontine glioma, a type of pediatric cancer, and this is the second time Carell has used a movie screening to raise awareness of the disease – in 2007 he put together a premiere in Boston for his film Evan Almighty.
