    Always been a fan, it’s about time some of these Holly”Woods” types got on board.

    1. avatar mark s. says:

      He may not own a rifle but the guy can shove his hand into his abdomen and pull out a pistol , seriously , I saw him do it in Video Drown .

      1. avatar GuyFromV says:

        Videodrome is a classic.

        1. avatar Benny the Jew says:

          Long live the new flesh!

        2. avatar Stuki Moi says:

          THE classic!

  3. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

    He had a gun in Best Seller. Oh, wait he died then too. Anyway, he should get one.

  4. avatar Viro says:

    Don’t forget his role in Scary Movie 2. A move in which his character exercised his Second Amendment rights.

  5. avatar TheSleeperHasAwakened says:

    Don’t forget Videodrome!

    1. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

      Did he pull a gun out of his guts in that one or was it something else? It was so long ago my memory of it is very degraded. I remember that I liked it a lot though (at the time anyway).

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        This scene, perhaps?

  6. avatar Kevin says:

    I never watch any of his movies, but then I don’t watch Jane Fonda movies either.

  7. avatar Nate H. says:

    ?I’ve got James Woods?

    1. avatar defensor fortismo says:

      Well that’s just ridiculous, there’s no way anyone would ever-ooh, a piece of candy!

      1. avatar Timmy! says:

        That trick always works. Why didn’t we do that FIRST?

  8. avatar COtto says:

    Missed one of my favorites…The Hard Way. And Really? James F’ing Woods doesn’t own a gun!? Well, good on him. I own lots and haven’t joined the NRA.

    1. avatar Petr says:

      He owns several guns, just not a rifle.

  9. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    Strictly speaking, he only wrote that he didn’t have a rifle. I think it’s a play on words with NRA’s name, as opposed to a declaration that he has no firearms whatsoever. I’d bet he owns some handguns.

    After all, Woods is a MENSA member with a reportedly extremely high I.Q. even by those standards. I have to think I.Q. counts for something legitimate in the realm of intelligence. MENSA can’t just be about the very attractive affinity program discounts.

    1. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

      Doh! I missed that.

    2. avatar angryAZ says:

      I am sure that he lost it in that terrifying boat accident

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        He was actually associated with a tragic boating accident.

        (Old joke)

        Q: What kind of wood doesn’t float?

        A: Natalie.


  10. James Woods is mostly known for his role as himself on the Family Guy.


    1. avatar mark s. says:

      Best known for his recurring role on family guy as himself , that must suck .
      Don’t get me wrong , I laugh my ask off at FG but James Woods has done a boat load of great movies and while being an outed conservative in Hollywood , lets remember him for his legit acting roles .
      That would be liken to remembering Connor McGregor for his coaching the this Ultimate Fighter season . Well we may end up doing that , but ……………..

  11. avatar Steven says:

    Nice!!!!!! Somebody recognizes the NRA for what it really is!!

  12. avatar BigDinVT says:

    He also exercised his 2A rights in the 1998 film Vampires.

    1. avatar mark s. says:

      I can’t think of a movie where he didn’t have a gun or get shot , really .

  13. avatar Bob109 says:

    Welcome aboard, sir. If you need help choosing a gun and with training, let us know.

  14. avatar John L. says:

    Yay, the NRA has a new member.

    But honestly, I dont much care about the personal opinions of any actor, pro- or anti-gun, regarding guns, any more than I would any other random citizen’s. Unless they actually know something about guns, in which case it’s a knowledgeable person who happens to be an actor.

    In this case he appears to be taking a stand on principle, which I do respect, especially given he may well take some professional heat for it.

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      Headline amended. Thanks!

    2. avatar Sian says:

      He’s been actively and openly conservative on Twitter for quite some time.

      This doesn’t change anything, but it is nice.

      1. avatar John L. says:

        I wouldn’t know; I’m not a twit. 😉

      2. avatar mark s. says:

        He’s gay ?
        I did not know that .

  15. avatar GuyFromV says:

    I officially apologise for all the things I’ve said over the years about James Woods’ hair.

  16. avatar Billy says:

    Problem is that Woods then steals Peter’s identity, and generally becomes a pain in the a$$ for the Griffins. Woods is eventually killed by a menopausal reporter, so it sort of works out?

  17. avatar PeterK says:

    Notice he said nothing about non-rifles.

  18. avatar Hawkeye says:

    Wasn’t he a villain in one episode of Firefly? Maybe Supernatural?

    Or am I thinking of a different actor?

  19. avatar DrewR55 says:

    I believe you also forgot Raid on Entebbe

  20. avatar neiowa says:

    Mr Woods it is capitalized as Constitutional. As in The Constitution.

  21. avatar Parnell says:

    Wasn’t he also one of the leads in “Once Upon A Time In America”?

  22. avatar kenneth says:

    Too bad they didn’t mention his leading role in Northfork. That’s where I met him, at my pawnshop, just off the street that they closed for one of the sets. Movie making is mostly standing around and waiting, and he did a lot of that in the pawnshop. Mostly on his phone. Didn’t buy anything, but a lot of the hangers-on following him around did. He did buy all of the art that a local painter did for the set, though.

  23. avatar Brian says:

    Awesome! James Woods for NRA Pres! Bad MFer and great actor.

    I hear he does have a good sized “rifle”. More like an anaconda LOL!

    Might have to up my NRA membership to Life with the $500 offer in my email.

    Woods vs Obansy/Killery? No contest!

  24. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Well known conservative who generally likes attractive young women. And he’s been that way for quite some time(conservative)-hollyweird be damned. Good to have you on board!

  25. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    I see he has endorsed Ted Cruz…good guy! I am jealous of him from Fast Walking with Kay Lenz…

    1. avatar mark s. says:

      I remember Kay Lenz , all of her .

  26. avatar HP says:

    I got a friend of mine to join the NRA two nights ago.

    He owns 0 guns.

    He also intends on changing that ASAP.

    1. avatar Benzo says:

      Good for you, HP! I’m working on several, no success yet but I know it usually only takes a single trip to the range to convert ’em…

  27. avatar levi says:

    Another actor finally gets it. Hopefully this doesn’t hurt his career.

  28. avatar ninjaTED says:

    OOO, piece of candy!

  29. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    He’s also incredibly intelligent.

  30. avatar MiniMe says:


    “We dance, we kiss, we schmooze, we carry on, we go home happy. What do you say?”

    Sure, I’ll join the NRA too. 😀
    Might even join a few other pro-2A associations just to piss my lefty relatives. 😉

  31. avatar Anon in CT says:

    Can we get to six million members by the election?

  32. avatar Chris T from KY says:

    One of my favorite bad guy actors. Welcome to the extended family!

  33. avatar rob g says:

    My favorite work of Woods was the role he played recently for a few episodes on Ray Donovan. His character was based loosely on Whitey Bulger. “Sully Sullivan” a deranged elderly serial killer with foot problems and velcro fastened mall walking shoes. His Southie accent was awesome. He also had a preference for Sig products.

    A True Believer

  35. avatar JoeVK says:

    My favorite James Woods role is Mike Toreno, the crazy agent of an unnamed government agency in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. “Roger that, Big Monkey, I got a 13-6 fat vulture. Need to acquire a drowning baby. Over. “
