Early life[edit] Woods was born in Vernal, Utah
Vernal, Utah
on April 18, 1947[1] and had a brother ten years younger than him.[2] His father, Gail Peyton Woods, was an army intelligence officer who died in 1960[3] after routine surgery. His mother, Martha A. (née Smith), operated a pre-school after her husband's death[4] and later married Thomas E. Dixon.[5] Woods grew up in Warwick, Rhode Island, where he attended Pilgrim High School, from which he graduated in 1965. He is of part Irish descent and was raised Catholic, briefly serving as an altar boy.[6][7] He ultimately chose to pursue his undergraduate studies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he majored in political science,[8] although he originally planned a career as an eye surgeon. While at MIT, Woods pledged to the Theta Delta Chi fraternity. He was also an active member of the student theatre group "Dramashop" where he both acted in and directed a number of plays. To pursue a career in acting, he dropped out of MIT in 1969 before his graduation.[9] Woods has said that he owes his career as an actor to Tim Affleck (father of actors Ben and Casey Affleck), who was a stage manager at the Theatre Company of Boston while Woods was a student there.[10] Career[edit] Theater[edit] Woods appeared in thirty-six plays before making his Broadway debut in 1970 at the Lyceum Theatre, in the first American production of Frank McMahon's Borstal Boy. He got the part by pretending he was British. He returned to Broadway the following year to portray David Darst in Daniel Berrigan's The Trial of the Catonsville Nine. In 1971, he played Bob Rettie in the American premiere of Michael Weller's Moonchildren at the Arena Stage
Arena Stage
in Washington, D.C. The production moved to Broadway the following year and Woods won a Theatre World Award for his performance. He returned to Broadway in 1973 to portray Steven Cooper in the original production of Jean Kerr's Finishing Touches.[11] Film and television[edit]

Woods was offered a leading role in the low-budget film Reservoir Dogs, but his agent rejected the script without showing it to the actor. When Woods learned of this some time later, he fired his agents (CAA), replacing them with ICM.[13][14] In 2006, Woods starred in End Game. He makes a cameo appearance as himself in the first episode of the third season of Entourage. In 2011, Woods appeared as Richard S.

He garnered critical praise for his voice work as Hades in the 1997 Disney film Hercules[17] and he won a Daytime Emmy Award in 2000 for the role in the follow-up television series (for the 1999 season). He also voiced Phillium Benedict, the twisted former headmaster who attempts to abolish summer vacation in the 2001 film, Recess: School's Out. He also appeared as a fictional version of himself in the episode of The Simpsons

Woods sued Kent Hospital in Warwick, Rhode Island, alleging negligence. The suit was settled in 2009.[32][33] On July 30, 2015, he sued a Twitter
Twitter
user for $10 million over an allegedly libelous tweet.[34] In October 2015, Woods lost his legal bid to learn who was behind the Twitter

revealed that the anonymous user had died, to which Woods said he hoped they had "died in agony".[37][38] Politics[edit] Woods has stated that he was a member of the Democratic Party up until the impeachment of Bill Clinton, commenting that "every single Democrat without exception stood behind a convicted perjurer. That was the end."[39] Woods's name was in an advertisement in the Los Angeles Times
