Actor James Woods is mostly known for his roles in VideodromeOnce Upon a Time in AmericaCasino, and Contact. Additionally, Woods has also been nominated for two Academy Awards for the Best Actor category for Salvador and for the Best Supporting Actor category for Ghosts of Mississippi. He is the recipient of three Emmy Awards for the television movies Promise and My Name Is Bill W. and the animated series Hercules

According to News Max, Woods – an outspoken conservative who backed Carly Fiorina, then Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the 2016 presidential race, and once called President Donald Trump “a true gentleman” – is a double Oscar nominee and three-time Emmy winner with more than 150 screen credits.

But the actor found himself without a talent agent July 4th when he received this tweet from Kaplan, a partner at The Gersh Agency, a Hollywood powerhouse whose clients include Kristen Stewart, Kyle Chandler, and Patricia Arquette:

“It’s the 4th of July, and I’m feeling patriotic. I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I could go on a rant, but you know what I’d say.”

“Dear Ken, I don’t actually. I was thinking if you’re feeling patriotic, you would appreciate free speech and one’s right to think as an individual. Be that as it may, I want to thank you for all your hard work and devotion on my behalf. Be well,” the actor said in his reply to the agent, which he also shared on Twitter:

Woods, who has now found himself agentless, says that his Conservative views have damaged his career. He also claims that he’s been blacklisted in Hollywood for speaking out. Although, if you check out Wood’s Twitter account, the actor has been handling it pretty well- all things considered. Showing some real grit and moving on with ‘business as usual’ as he continues to share his political support.

As Written By Fox Insider:

Melissa Francis said Americans need to return to an atmosphere where people can disagree on politics while remaining friendly.

“The lack of tolerance has been mind-boggling to me. I don’t know when it was OK before to out and shun and vilify people for having a different political point of view,” said Francis.

Lisa Boothe said she was “shunned” at a local dog park recently after two women there found out she’s a conservative.

“They stopped being nice to me,” she said, adding she’d love to have a beer with Dershowitz, since it’d be “fascinating conversation.”
