Harvey Calls in Sick: The beleaguered Harvey Weinstein dropped out of his scheduled keynote interview today at the Dow Jones/Nielsen "Media and Money" conference in New York, reportedly deferring to brother Bob and Weinstein Company COO Lee Solomon while he attended to a "personal matter." On the agenda: "[W]hat is Weinstein's view on the future of the film business and his company?" We hear his proxies stayed positive in the face of Harvey's conspicuous absence, noting that they have a sure-fire Oscar hopeful on their hands for December and that charitable giving is up a million percent from 2007.
