Conservative actor James Woods: ‘I don’t expect to work again’

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, October 9, 2013

James Woods, the award-winning actor and outspoken conservative, said Tuesday night that he's aware he may never work again in Hollywood because of his political views.

"This President is a true abomination. To have barricaded the WW2 vets, but allow illegal aliens privilege," the 66-year-old Mr. Woods posted to Twitter, linking to a USA Today article.

One fan asked if Mr. Woods was afraid he would be blacklisted in liberal Hollywood.

"I don't expect to work again. I think Barack Obama is a threat to the integrity and future of the Republic. My country first," he responded.

Mr. Woods is best known for his roles in "The Onion Field," "Ghosts of Mississippi" and the legal series "Shark." He  also has voiced roles in episodes of "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy."

This is hardly the first time the actor has expressed disapproval toward the president. The Washington Times reported in September that Mr. Woods had called President Obama a "gift from hell" for sharing personal data on Americans with Israel. In July, the actor ranted over Mr. Obama's insertion of his personal opinion into the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin trial, characterizing it as fueling racial tensions.
