Harry Wormwood is the secondary antagonist in the book and movie, Matilda. He is Matilda's stepfather. He was portrayed by Danny DeVito, who also directed the film and narrated it.

Harry often abuses Matilda by sending her to her room as a false punishment for being a "smart aleck", calling her names, destroying Matilda's library book, and rants and raves at her.
