  • How could you not want this guy in your kitchen playing you tunes?

While Jeff Daniels may be better known for his acting career in moves like Dumb & Dumber or the TV show The Newsroom, the actor and singer's lifelong project has been the Purple Rose Theatre Company in Chelsea, MI, which he founded 26 years ago.

Like most theaters, it is holding a fundraiser full of items to auction on, except at this one you can bid on Jeff Daniels himself.

That's right. Jeff Daniels will play a private concert in the home of whoever bigs the highest in the auction. Daniels will bust out the old guitar, probably sip on a glass of red, and serenade you and your friends to some great tunes. Maybe if you're lucky enough he'll even do a Sorkin monologue from The Newsroom, too!
