Will Ferrell

A Dallas man bid $47,100 for his 10-year-old son to be an extra in Will Ferrell’s new movie, Step Brothers, in a charity auction for Cancer for College. The part contains no spoken lines so expect some dumb looking kid to be a 3 second prop for Will Ferrell.

“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.”

I don’t know. Charities are great and all, but it just seems like cancer patients have more to worry about than registering for fall classes. You know, like, hospital bills, radiation therapy and, what’s that other one? Oh, yea. Death.
