Just when you think these Hollywood moguls have a sense of humor about their media portrayals, you find out they don’t. There’s been some Internet buzz that Harvey Weinstein is amused by his doppelganger portrayal on HBO’s Entourage. (Watch a video clip here.) I can tell you that’s bullshit. As everyone knows, actor Maury Chaykin has been playing “Harvey Weingard” in a way to imply that the real Harv is a terrifying tyrant. Well, I just heard from a source close to Weinstein that, at the recent Camp Allen mogulfest in Sun Valley, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes asked the real Harv to do a walk-on for the show. Weinstein replied, ”Fuck you.” Noted the longtime pal, “And it was a serious fuck you.”
