Harvey Keitel said suing top firm

Actor Harvey Keitel is suing E*Trade, saying the online stock-trade company hired him to do three commercials for $1.5m — but then fired him.

The New York Post reports that the 'Pulp Fiction' star signed on to the ad campaign on January 28, 2014, after fellow actor Christopher Walken — who also had a memorable role in the 1994 Quentin Tarantino flick — twice passed on the deal, according to the Manhattan Supreme Court suit filed Monday.

But a day after they inked the deal, Keitel’s talent agency received word that E*Trade was 'moving in a different direction' and canned the star.

'Without any justification or excuse, E*Trade refused to proceed forward with the contract entered into with Mr. Keitel', the suit says.
