Harvey Weingard is a producer based on Harvey Weinstein. He is portrayed by Maury Chaykin.

Ari Gold mentioned that every film Harvey produces is like a "Midas touch" and a sure box office hit. Harvey has a terrible temper and gets tricked by Vincent and Eric every time they make a deal. However, in the Season Four season finale, Harvey ends up buying Medellin for a steal of $1 upfront. Ari goes on to say afterward that Harvey will save the film in the release.


Over the years, Vince, Ari, and E have had a number of business dealings with Harvey Weingard.

  • They firstly screw him after agreeing to make a film with him in Australia after believing that James Cameron will probably not offer them Aquaman, but after deciding to take a gamble and see if he does offer. E tells Harvey the bad news, right before the press conference announcing the film, at which Harvey declares doom.
  • They then screw him again as E sells him Medellin for $25 million because he doesn't think the movie is good enough to get into Cannes and that Billy Walsh needs to leave as director. However, when Medellin is then accepted into Cannes they decide they want to sell the film on the open market, leading Drama to shout it out whilst Weingard is being dragged out of a bar. Harvey then shouts that their careers are ruined at which Drama asks if he was talking about Eric.
