Actor Will Forte and co-star Ryan Phillippe announced the plans on Instagram. The successful bidder will be able to take five friends to a screening of the first three episodes of Mac Gruber, who will also be assisted by Forte and Phillippe (winners must provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test).
Along with the ultimate price of a screening, Forte has also promised him a few prizes, although some seem a bit nicer than others.
“By the way, if the auctioned item costs $ 15,000 (unlikely), you’ll be able to keep a page from the KFBR392 notebook of my choice,” the Forte Instagram caption read. âIf it costs $ 30,000 (extremely unlikely), you can choose whatever page you like. If it costs $ 100,000 (no luck), I’ll take you to frozen yogurt twice a year for the rest of my life (the Fortes are known to live to 90).
Proceeds from the auction will go to Boys & Girls Clubs in Venice, California. Currently, the highest bid for the experience is set at $ 100,000, exceeding Forte’s huge expectations and paving the way for a huge donation to charity.
