He's long been known for his political activism, and today (March 16) George Clooney's latest protest landed him in handcuffs at the Sudanese embassy in Washington, D.C.
The ""Descendants" actor was taken into police custody alongside his journalist father Nick Clooney, as well as Martin Luther King III, NAACP President Ben Jealous, Rep. Jim McGovern, Rep. Jim Moran and former Rep. Tom Andrews.
Proving he's not just a handsome stud with amazing acting skills, George Clooney is spending time bringing light to some serious issues in the violent Sudanese region of Africa.
The "Descendants" star met with South Sudan's minister and a regional governor last week and, according to the Associated Press, he also crossed into the dangerous Nuba Mountains where civilians were forced to take shelter in caves because the region was under aerial military attack.
