Harvey Keitel — Hey E*Trade, Deal's a Deal … Gimme My Cash

0622-harvey-keitel-etradeHarvey Keitel played “The Wolf” for E*Trade — swooping in to save its ass in a commercial series, only to have the company yank a $ 1.5 million deal out from under him … according to his lawsuit.

Keitel says E*Trade came to him in early 2014 … desperate to land a new spokesman, after Christopher Walken turned them down twice. Negotiations were fast and furious, and they agreed on a 3 commercial deal — he says the company sent him the contract, and he accepted the terms.

But 2 days later, E*Trade informed Keitel it was “moving in a different direction” with their ads. He says there was no further explanation, but they did offered him $ 150k … as a kill fee. 

Harvey wasn’t happy with the measly 10% of the $ 1.5 mil — he says E*Trade called the deal “firm and binding” — so, he’s suing for the full amount.
