All In Challenge: Act with DiCaprio, hang with Bieber or present with Ellen | Ents & Arts News

If you’ve ever dreamed of acting alongside Leonardo DiCaprio or being serenaded by Justin Bieber in your front room, now could be your moment.

A host of celebrities are offering the chance to get up close and personal by donating to the US coronavirus appeal, the All In Challenge.

Those donating to the fund will be entered into a prize draw to be in with the chance of winning a money-can’t-buy experience.

The brainchild of the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team co-owner Michael Rubin, the fund has raised $5.6m (£4.4m) in just three days.

Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro have offered a walk-on role on their next film, Martin Scorsese’s Killers Of The Flower Moon.

Sharing the news on social media, DiCaprio and De Niro ask fans: “Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work with Martin Scorsese, De Niro & myself? Here’s your chance.”

No stranger to fundraising, DiCaprio recently launched America’s Food Fund, to help those in struggling communities around the United States.

Justin Bieber says he will fly to a fan’s house and give them a one-to-one performance of his 2009 hit One Less Lonely Girl – once lockdown is over of course.

Chat show hosts Ellen DeGeneres and Ryan Seacrest are both offering the chance to co-host on their respective shows.

Matthew McConaughey has invited a donor to join him in his private box to watch an American football game in Texas.

Kevin Hart, who has been recovering from a recent car accident, is offering a speaking role on his next movie.

Bill Murray will give a lucky winner a round of golf.

And, as an added extra, rapper Meek Mill is auctioning his 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom, with bidding kicking off at $200,000 (£160,000).

Rubin says his inspiration to start the fund was to feed as many people across American as possible, at the same time as bringing people from the sports and entertainment world together.

The All In Challenge aims to raise $100m (£80m) for four US charities: Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry.
