James Woods Says His Agent, a True Patriot, Dropped Him on July Fourth

James Woods has somehow managed to get a Hollywood agent to act according to his conscience.

On Twitter today, Woods shared a screenshot of an email he said he received from his agent Ken Kaplan on the Fourth of July, in which Kaplan said he was “feeling patriotic” and had decided he didn’t want to represent Woods anymore. Woods spends much of his time on Twitter going on about right-wing ideas (or getting dragged by Armie Hammer and Amber Tamblyn), and Kaplan, who Woods described as a “political liberal,” added, “I mean I could go on a rant but you know what I’d say.”

So this email from my agent (a political liberal) today….


Woods went on to share a response on social media, although it’s unclear if the message was actually sent to Kaplan over e-mail as well.

“My response: ‘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 wrote.

Woods, who is most known for roles in CasinoOnce Upon a Time in MexicoThe Virgin Suicides, and Videodrome is an outspoken conservative who frequently shares his political beliefs on social media.
