I hope it has talking animals! Nothing says class like a snooty cat and a courageous dog with celebrity voices.
That brings up a (possibly) interesting point. Did the Bukowski drawl that we know from his later life even exist in the young Bukowski, or was it the result of his near-death hospital episode?I could even see him as a Hank, but now I forget the tone of his tone of voice.
Can't at the minute remember where I read it, but Bukowski certainly states that the slurred speech was the direct result of his massive Upper G.I bleed, that would lead to profound hypotension (low blood pressure) causing potential hypoxic brain damage (low supply of oxygen)....

A lot of unusual things happen to people when they come very close to death or have traumatic brain injuries (which a massive loss of blood could cause).
Yes, yes! I just looked him up because I'm not good at remembering names. Yes, great features and good actor. I could even see him as a Hank, but now I forget the tone of his tone of voice.
Well, you're certainly not in that territory here.
That research and those interviews made for a couple of good books. But that's all it did. It did not give him a direct view into the 10 year old Bukowski's psyche. Anything he says about how Bukowski felt or acted as a boy (that Bukowski himself hasn't said or written) is speculation and fantasy.
Are you suggesting that Steve Buscemi would be a better casting? Actually, he's an excellent actor and probably would be. He seems like someone who could play someone named Baldy Lacrosse.
In the last few weeks, Humphris finished a script based on "Ham on Rye" by the late Los Angeles writer Charles Bukowski. Right now, he is casting it and closing the contract - it is to be produced by Amblin Entertainment, a branch of Chesterfield Films.
