GRINNELL, Iowa -- The first day of voting brought actor Sean Astin to Iowa to campaign for Hillary Clinton.

The actor was here to encourage the millennials vote.

"You guys were the talk of the town, I mean millennials is a buzz word of the day,” said Astin. “You have the ability to make the difference in the election.”

Astin told the group the time has passed to consider third party candidates, and that by voting for them, you are voting for Trump.

Astin also remembered a movie he filmed in Iowa called “The Final Season” on the Norway High School Baseball Team.

"It's about their baseball team at school less than a hundred students and they won championships 19 out of 23 straight years so I was the club coach who took over the team,” said Astin. “Beating the biggest schools in the state year after year after year and you're like how did this little team do it, it's about excellence is about taking pride in figuring out how to beat the opposition.”

Astin also shared that his mother, the late actress, Patty Duke was a big Hillary Clinton supporter, and campaigned for her where she lived in Idaho.

Sean Astin first got to know the Clintons 25 years ago when he was asked to campaign through the Screen Actors Guild. He has been to 14 states campaigning for Clinton this year.
