Harvey grew up with his brother and sister in a family of Jewish Immigrants, Miriam and Harry Keitel. He was a student of the Abraham Lincoln High School, but before he matriculated, Harvey joined the US Marine Corps, then on return found a job at court as a reporter, and worked for several years before deciding to try and become an actor.
Harvey took acting classes by Stella Adler and Lee Strasberg, before eventually landing roles on stage. He spent several years building his career in theatres, mostly off-Broadway, and had his first screen role in the Martin Scorsese`s debut “Who`s That Knocking At My Door” in 1967. Ever since then, the two have a friendship which transferred to the professional level, resulting in Harvey`s appearances in several Scorsese`s films, including “Mean Streets” (1973), “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”(1974), “Taxi Driver” (1976), “The Last Temptation of Christ” (1988), among others, all of which have increased his net worth.
Over the course of his career, Harvey has appeared in more than 140 film and TV titles, which represents the main source of his net worth. Although he emerged as a talented actor in the 1970s, appearing also in films such as “That’s the Way of the World” (1975), “The Duelists” (1977), and “Fingers” (1978), the 1980s, weren’t so nice to him, as he managed to record typical roles of a thug in films such as “Copkiller” (1983), “A Stone in the Mouth” (1983), “Falling in Love” (1984), and “Wise Guys”(1986), among others.
