LA,Ca. - It was reported today that 70's troubadour Jackson Browne has gone into hiding after poor reviews for his performance in the lead role depicting the life of another 70's legend, Charles Bronson.

Browne,a controversial choice to play Bronson, was reportedly holed up in the Malibu home of long time friend and confidante Linda Ronstadt, with fellow songwriters Stephen Bishop and Andrew Gold also in close attendance, all worried about the fragile mental state of the super-sensitive author of "Doctor my eyes", "Take it easy", "Running on empty" and many more classics.

Critics had savaged Brownes performance after the premier of "Stoneface: A wish for life", citing Brownes acting as "wimpy", "fagotty", "an insult to a real man" and, perhaps most cuttingly, "Jackson Hole".

Producer Heimy Bechstein has defended his decision to cast Browne in the role of Bronson. "He was great in Pulp Fiction" said Bechstein "And I just KNOW that audiences will get used to the concept of a black guy playing a white dude. Anyway, I never was sure about Charlie's ethnicity. Come on, the guy cudduv been anything.His own mother didn't know"

However, it is believed that that Brownes next celluloid project,a biopic of Leonardo Di Caprio,will go ahead as planned.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
