Saw that earlier. If you get a chance you should read his autobiography: When I Stop Talking, You'll Know I'm Dead: Useful Stories from a Persuasive Man. It's excellent.

He's one of the producers of the new HBO show The Brink. Didn't realize he was 77. Thought he was in his 80's. Seems like he's been around a super long time.

I wonder if next week's episode of The Brink will feature an In Memory of title card.

There was a great HBO documentary made about him. Everyone should check it out.

Jerry Weintraub is a legend. He's one of the producers and businessmen I've always looked up to.

RIP

He wasn't a bad actor either when he made those little pop-up appearances in his movies. He was a funny guy

Maybe your thinking about Fred Weintraub. He's in his 80's.
