It might be tough for Harvey Weinstein to find a job these days, so he's apparently created one for himself, reports Vanity Fair. After a hearing Monday in which he pleaded not guilty to three new sex-crime charges, lawyer Ben Brafman said that the disgraced movie producer was still reading film scripts in hope of trying to salvage his career. "He is a brilliant maker of movies and scripts and is trying to pursue other projects," Brafman said, per Washington Post reporter Steven Zeitchik. Then he made what Zeitchik calls a "truly bizarre claim," notes Vulture: that Weinstein is also working as a paralegal on his own case. Brafman notes that Weinstein "[has been] very helpful to the defense so far," per the Washington Post. (Read more Harvey Weinstein stories.)
