Man bids $47K to be in film

Will FerrellA man bid more than $47,000 at a charity auction to get his 10-year-old son a chance to play an extra in an upcoming Will Ferrell movie. The money will go to the Cancer for College foundation. The high bidder, who is from Dallas, asked to remain anonymous. However, he released a statement through the foundation, saying, “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.”
