James Woods has been in the entertainment industry since the early 1970s, but the actor says it wasn‘t until he began appearing on CBS‘ Shark that he truly felt like a star. "I did, like, 127 movies and I never made a dime. I wasn‘t really sure how much of a star I was, frankly… But for the first time ...
