He may not be doing Mitt Romney any favours but Clint Eastwood is trying again.
After his widely-mocked appearance at the Republican convention, in which he ramblingly addressed an empty chair, the 82-year filmmaker is back, supporting Romney in a new advertisement called At Stake.
This time he talks to the camera instead of a chair, announcing: "Obama's second term would be a rerun of the first and our country just couldn't survive that."
But he is facing opposition from his one-time friend and co-star Morgan Freeman, who is starring in a rival commercial promoting President Obama called "Challenges."
Freeman, who co-starred with Eastwood in Million Dollar Baby and played Nelson Mandela in Eastwood's Invictus, openly contradicts his former friend's message, saying: "The last thing we should do is turn back now."
