"I'm here because you're here," the 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' star told the crowd.

Bernie Sanders gained another celebrity endorsement over the weekend: Danny DeVito.

The short-stature actor, best known for his work in Taxi and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, opened for the Democratic presidential candidate on Sunday at a rally in St. Louis, Mo.

"I'm here because you're here," DeVito told the cheering crowd. "Because, I feel the Bern." 

During his speech, DeVito likened Sanders to Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars saga.

"We need you Obi-Wan," DeVito said right before Sanders walked on stage.

The two men embraced before Sanders began to stump.
