November 21, 2006: Elton John Out Bid for Superman Film Role

Sir Elton John bid 40,000 for a walk-on part in the next Superman movie - but was beaten to it by retail boss Sir Philip Green.

Sir Philip paid 50,000 and gave the cameo role to his wife Tina.

They were bidding in a star-studded auction to raise money for London's Old Vic theatre.

The event raised over 500,000 and was attended by the likes of Claudia Schiffer, Elle Macpherson, Trudi Styler and Sex And The City's Kim Cattrall.

The Old Vic's artistic director Kevin Spacey was guest of honour at the fundraiser, held at London private members club Fifty.

"This was a great event and a really valuable contribution to our work at the theatre," Spacey said.
