Bukowski, for all his flaws, was the real deal. That photo of Pitt is hysterical, real metrosexual wannabe, posing in his little earing and stubble and hat. I can imagine him in one of those Bukowski theme bars in his sunglasses looking around to see who's watching him be cooooool.
Bukowski himself would probably hit him up for drinks and money and lose him when he went to primp in front of the bathroom mirror and get on his cellphone to tell 47 of his friends "Guess who I'm buying drinks for right now?!?!?!"

(What would Thomas Pynchon do?)
There's no doubt about that. Bukowski wrote the screenplay for Barfly
, it was indeed semi-autobiographical, and he made a cameo in a dark bar. Said bar being even more his style than the main bar in the movie.
