Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood says "when someone doesn't get the job done, you gotta hold them accountable" in a new ad from conservative super PAC American Crossroads. Eastwood famously endorsed Mitt Romney earlier this year at the Republican National Convention with an unconventional address. Watch the more serious 30-second spot below:

"Obama's second term would be a rerun of the first, and our country just couldn't survive that," Eastwood says. "We need someone who can turn it around fast, and that man is Mitt Romney."

The New York Times reports that the ad will be airing on TV in seven critical swing states: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, and Virginia.
