Reuben Tishkoff is a flamboyant business kingpin and also an old school business tycoon who gets muscled out of his Vegas hotel by Terry Benedict, which is the reason he finances the expensive casino-caper that Danny Ocean leads.

In "Ocean's Thirteen", Reuben is forced out of a partnership by Willy Bank, leading to a breakdown that triggers a heart attack that lands Reuben in hospital and in a coma. This leaves Danny and the Ocean's team shocked and enraged at Bank's treatment of Reuben and as such, the group gather together and vow to get revenge by ruining Bank.

Reuben eventually comes out of his coma and spends his day recovering by reading letters that the others have left for him. He soon returns to full strength and aids the team in the final stages of the con, Rusty having brought Reuben into the field after realizing that they needed help.

Having ruined Bank, Danny later reveals to Reuben that the group has used their money to buy property north of the Las Vegas Strip for Reuben which has Reuben and he later thanks Basher for the letters, stating that they helped him.

He later advises Danny's sister Debbie against pulling off the heist she's planning, telling her that Danny believed it'd work but shouldn't pull it off just to prove that. She doesn't listen.
