Role in Will Ferrell Movie Goes for $47,100


Remember when I told you that Will Ferrell was auctioning off a role in his movie Step Brothers, with the proceeds going to charity? Well, we have a winner!

Clearly, Ferrell was right to appeal to kids' parents, assuring them that it would be "the surefire way to win the parent of the year award." The Dallas father of 10-year-old boy ended up with the winning bid of $47,1000 which secures his son a role as an extra in Ferrell's movie. Bidding started at $5,000.

The money will go to Cancer for College, an organization started by Ferrell's college buddy Craig Pollard who is a two-time Hodgkin's disease survivor. The foundation helps send current and former cancer patients to college.

The highest-bidding man wishes to remain anonymous, but said in a statement issued by the foundation, "Winning this auction means a lot to me on a very personal basis. 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."
