Attention idle rich actors: Buy a private workshop with Robert Duvall


Oscar winning thespian extraordinaire Robert Duvall (you might remember him from such films as Four Christmases, Secondhand Lions, John Q, and Deep Impact) is currently auctioning himself off on ebay. One lucky (and extremely wealthy) SOB will offer to pay more than anyone else for a private acting class with Duvall and his wife, Luciana Pedraza (you might remember her from such films as, um, Assassination Tango â?? written and directed , coincidentally we're sure, by Duvall) in Horse Country, Virginia. The package also includes a two-night stay at a hotel there, PLUS lunch. The times and specifics of the workshop aren't detailed, but we can assume topics covered will include building a napalm-scent sense memory and hitching your sexy ass apple wagon to an Academy Award winning star. Bidding starts at $10,000 and you do have to be preapproved (read: credit check) to enter a bid, so no funny business or bidding with coupons for free back rubs.

Plus the money goes to the Robert Duvall Children's Fund, "a nonpartisan organization committed to improving the living conditions of impoverished children. RDCF has been able to provide assistance to many children in Northern Argentina through Todos Juntos, a local organization in Argentina dedicated to providing education to children suffering from Downs Syndrome." So if you joke around about this thing, you're probably a total dickbag.
