Not many celebs are vocal about their support for Trump but Sutcliffe has recently liked tweets proclaiming "Men's politics is best for the world" and calling out "the authoritarian left."

He has also tweeted his thoughts about when Trump dies, saying he will become "a symbol of rebellion, and replaces Che Guevara on t-shirts."

Sutcliffe is very well known in the US having acted in 37 episodes of the series, which ran from 2001 to 2007, the actor also made an appearance in the 2016 Netflix miniseries Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
