Hugh Grant has found a new way to land acting gigs - the actor was recently seen bidding for a role at an auction.
The Notting Hill star put in a $32,000 (GBP16,000) bid for two walk-on roles in forthcoming comedy Lost for Words at a London auction fundraiser on Tuesday (17Jun08).
But Grant will have to stick with auditioning for parts - he was outbid by a wealthy extra who shelled out $36,000 (GBP18,000).
