They don't make 'em like Jerry Weintraub anymore. Born in Brooklyn, he quickly climbed the ladder, earning early success in the music business, working with a staggering array of talent including Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Neil Diamond, Eric Clapton, John Denver and more. Once he conquered the music game, Weintraub moved over to the movie business making a name for himself with Robert Altman's "Nashville" and going on to put his mark on films like "Diner," the "Ocean's Eleven" trilogy and "The Karate Kid." It's been a hell of a ride for the producer who, now in his '70s, shows no sign of slowing down and said recently, "the word ‘retirement’ it’s not in my vocabulary—they’re gonna take me out with my boots on.”

Producer Spills On Getting Revenge On George Clooney, What Two Stars He'd Love To Work With & MoreProducer Jerry Weintraub has stories. A lot of them. And it's no surprise since over his nearly four-decades-long career he's worked with some of the biggest names in music and movie biz including Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, The Carpenters, Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond, Steven Soderbergh, Robert Altman and Barry Levinson. Corralling those kinds of egos and the demands that follow is no easy task, but Weintraub not only makes promises, he delivers with an attitude that has put these kinds of talents at ease, and it has resulted in a strong resume of work including films like "Diner," "Nashville" and the "Ocean's Eleven" trilogy.
