Want To Be In An X-Men Movie? Here's Your Chance!
A charity auction has been set up to allow one lucky fan the opportunity to not only meet the X-cast, but film a scene with them.

MTV SplashPage has uncovered an online charity auction that offers X-Men fans a chance to win a role in one of the upcoming films. The auction benefits the WorldWide Orphans Foundation, and is being run by CharityBuzz.

Here are the details, courtesy of their official press release:

Share the excitement of film making with a walk-on role in the next installment in the highly successful film series, X-Men. Although cast information has not been announced, the next X-Men film will likely find the series' previous stars returning for more action-packed thrills. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will also give the winner a chance to meet some of the actors who may be on set that day. Filming is anticipated to begin in 2011, location to be determined.

This experience has been graciously donated by one of the film's producers, John Palmero. John is a founder and partner of Seed Productions, a film, television, and theater production company with offices in Los Angeles and Sydney. Seed’s most recent film, Wolverine, opened to over $85MM domestically and the number one spot at the box office. Palermo served as producer on that film, as well as Seed’s first film, Deception, a thriller starring Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams. Additionally, Palermo executive produced Viva Laughlin, Seed’s foray into television programming. Last year, Palermo was instrumental in overseeing all elements related to Hugh Jackman’s stint as Oscar host, producing a massive opening number, as well as a mid-show musical extravaganza.

The proceeds for this item benefit ,a href="http://www.wwo.org/">Worldwide Orphans Foundation


What has yet to be disclosed is which X-Men movie the winner will be featured in. The only two currently on Fox's film slate are Brian Singer's X-Men: First Class and the sequel to last year's X-Men Origins:Wolverine. Since the press release from CharityBuzz states the project is set to begin production in 2011; it could also be referring to the Wolverine spin-off Deadpool

But be sure to read the fine print, True Believers. Like most Hollywood promises, things aren't always as good as they seem:


Valid for one person. This is a non-speaking walk-on role with no guarantee that the winner's scene will be included in the final cut. Location and shooting schedule is to be determined. Does not include travel or accommodations. Not valid for children under the age of 18. This item cannot be resold or reauctioned. Winner subject to security screening.


The auction's item is valued at $25,000 US; and bidding has already reached over $3,000 US. Regardless if you choose to bid on the part or not, check in with CharityBuzz to see when they will disclose the title of the forthcoming X-film. The auction ends on April 1st, so if you plan on bidding you'd better hurry.

Though it doesn't seem like much to win, the proceeds go to needy children and the opportunity will truly be a memorable one. That should be good enough for any fan!

I would love it too. But I'm as poor as a church mouse at the moment so there's no hope for me.

This is going to go for a couple million, most likely. If not more.

That makes it sound a little less cool. I obviously don't have the money for it either though.
