James Woods Claims Agent Dropped Him Over Politics
James Woods is claiming that his agent dropped him because of his outspoken conservative views. The Ghosts of the Mississippi actor made the announcement on Twitter, sharing an email he says his (former) agent Ken Kaplan sent him.
“It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic,” Kaplan wrote. “I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I can go on a rant but you know what I’d say.”
He captioned a screenshot of the email: "So this email from my agent (a political liberal) today..."
Woods followed up with his alleged reply: "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.”
