On Thursday, July 5, 2018, Woods shared on Twitter an email from his agent, Ken Kaplan.

Sparks certainly flew for James Woods on the Fourth of July. During his career, Woods was nominated for two Academy Awards, one for the movie Salvador, a film that is extremely critical of USA foreign policy in Central America in the 1980s.

Woods shared the news of his dismissal with a screenshot of an email from Kaplan, whom Woods called "a political liberal" in his tweet.

James Woods, actor and noted outspoken conservative, was dropped by his talent agent on July 4. I mean, this could rival Carrie's post-it dump in its sheer randomness.

"I don't want to represent you anymore", the agent went on.

Child's Play To Get Remade By MGM
The film kicked off a franchise that started off relatively serious, before drifting more into comedy horror. Though MGM didn't provide comment on the news, THR notes that the studio is "fast-tracking the project".

Woods, who is known for his conservative views, responded to Kaplan's resignation email in a tweet that questioned the agent's take on patriotism, but ended on a gracious note.

"Be that as it may, I want to thank you for all your hard work and devotion on my behalf". In September, actress Amber Tamblyn wrote an open letter to Woods accusing him of hitting on her when she was 16. Elizabeth Perkins also accused him of harassment at a #MeToo rally previous year.

Oscar-nominated actor Woods hasn't been as prolific on the big screen as of late; his last movie was Bling, released in 2016. The veteran actor has starred in the Showtime series "Ray Donovan" and "Family Guy" (as himself) and recently voiced the role of Lex Luthor in the animated TV show "Justice League Action".

Deadline reported in December 2009 that Woods had signed with the Gersh Agency, where Kaplan is a partner.
