Bronson Bills Huddersfield

Charles Bronson has sent an invoice to Huddersfield Town Football Club for $350. The multimillionaire is billing them for his 15 second appearance in their video of last season's battle against relegation, The Great Escape. The clip, which was taken from the original Great Escape, shows Bronson, now 76, as a young man tunnelling to freedom in his role as Polish POW, Danny Velinksi. The director of Huddersfield's video, Simon Normington, applied for and was granted permission to use the clip by MGM, who own the rights. But he failed to clear the "likeness rights" with the actor himself - hence the bill. The club have offered Bronson tickets to see their match against Bolton next March in lieu of payment. But if he turns down this less-than-stunning offer, they say they'll cough up.
