Fans of Paul RuddJon Hamm and David Schwimmer can now sit down to dine with their favorite stars -- the actors are offering themselves up for lunch dates in an online auction.

Celebrities including director Kevin Smith, Hamm's Mad Men co-star John Slattery, and Julianna Margulies will share a meal with the highest bidders in the sale, to be held on auction Web site eBay.com.

Also up for grabs are walk-on roles in movies starring Bruce Willis and Drew Barrymore.

Proceeds from the auctions, scheduled to end on April 16, will benefit the Adrienne Shelly Foundation, which gives scholarships and grants to female filmmakers.

The nonprofit organization was set up by late director Adrienne Shelly's husband, Andrew Ostroy, following her death in 2006.

Shelly was found dead in her New York apartment in November 2006. Construction worker and illegal immigrant Diego Pillco later confessed to the killing and was sentenced to 25 years behind bars last year.
