America's favourite gun-toting octogenarian, Clint Eastwood, has grabbed the headlines after holding a conversation with an empty chair during an address to the Republican National Convention.

Eastwood ad-libbed a speech with an imaginary Barack Obama, asking him: "So Mr President, how do you handle the promises you've made?"
