George Clooney brought his star power outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, DC on Friday morning, and was arrested along with a small group of protestors.
His father, Nick Clooney, was also arrested, along with Democratic US reps. Jim Moran (Virginia) and James McGovern (Massachusetts), NAACP President Ben Jealous and Martin Luther King III.
Clooney's arrest is no surprise to those that have been following the Ocean's Eleven actor's activities all week.
From a presentation to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on Wednesday to a State Dinner at the White House on Thursday, Clooney has been vocal about the need to stop Sudanese leader Omar Al-Bashir, who has been withholding food and aid from nearly half a million people in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile regions.
On Wednesday, Clooney, 50, released a video with the Enough Project documenting his recent trip to the Nuba Mountains.
I'm just trying to raise attention . . . let your Congress know, let your president know, Clooney said following his arrest Friday, according to Ann Curry on Twitter.
It's actually a humiliating thing to be arrested no matter what you do, but I'm glad to be standing here with my father, said Clooney, who was officially arrested for civil disobedience.
Clooney's celebrity friends have also been showing their support via Twitter.
Whoa. Go Clooney, wrote Eliza Dushku.
George Clooney is just getting arrested NOW? Did nobody see 'Batman and Robin?' joked Michael Ian Black.
#FREECLOONEY and #ClooneyCrimes have also been trending on Twitter since Clooney's arrest.
