(KFTK) - The actor known for his roles in "Road House," "The Big Lebowski, " and "A Star is Born" lent his voice to presidential candidate Joe Biden for a political ad that aired during Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night. Then Sam Elliott became the top trending topic on Twitter.

You can watch the ad at the top of this page, which is titled "Go From There."

“No Democratic rivers, no Republican mountains, just this great land and all that’s possible on it with a fresh start,” Elliott says in the video. “Cures we can find, futures we can shape, work to reward, dignity to protect.”

It brought out some very passionate reactions on Twitter – from both sides of the political spectrum. It seemed many people thought Elliott leaned more Republican than Democrat, possibly because of the conservative character on "The Ranch" and the often right-leaning memes that “The Stranger” character he plays in "The Big Lebowski" is featured in.

Here are some examples from the Twitter storm:
