After it was revealed Hollywood actor James Woods agent had dumped him over the outspoken conservative's political views, it seems plenty of folks wanted to know what Woods was up to these days. 

He's not just a poker player.  He's a successful one who just cashed out in two World Series of Poker events.

Those calling him "dried up" may not have realized Woods is among the biggest celebrity poker players on the circuit today.  That's because the popular Hendon Mob database displaying his results crashed Thursday afternoon as the Hollywood actor began trending on Twitter. 

Here is the message folks were getting shortly before 3 pm EDT:

Woods confirmed via Twitter that his agent, Ken Kaplan, had indeed fired him on the 4th of July.

The Hollywood actor, a devout supporter of US President Donald Trump, went on to call his now former agent "a political liberal" in his tweets confirming the breakup.

Kaplan, who has represented Woods for nearly ten years, wrote in an email: "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."

Unlike a beef over sexual improprieties allegations he had with fellow poker pro Daniel Negreanu earlier this year in which he called the Canadian player "a piece of shit", Woods did take the high road in responding to Kaplan.

"My response," Woods wrote. "'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."
