Hollywood funnyman Will Ferrell is auctioning a cameo spot in his new film to raise money for his college friend's cancer charity.

The Blades of Glory actor is auctioning a role in new movie Step Brothers to help his University of Southern California fraternity brother Craig Pollard fundraise for his Cancer for College foundation.

Ferrell says, "What 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."

Online bidding will begin this Monday from an opening bid of $5,000 and continue until Sept. 26, with the winner announced the next day.

The winner will meet Ferrell at the 14th annual Cancer for College golf tournament dinner at the Temecula Creek Inn in California on Sept. 28, before filming starts in October.

Pollard, who has survived Hodgkin's disease twice, launched the charity to provide college scholarships to cancer patients and survivors, and has awarded $200,000 to 50 people since 1993.
