George Clooney has been one of Hollywoods favorite actors since his work on the TV drama ER. Since leaving the silver screen George Clooney has made the a-list of movie stars with his roles in Peacemaker, One Fine Day, as well as the Ocean's series.
Just two days removed from his headline-making arrest outside of the Sudanese Embassy, George Clooney sat down with "Fox News Sunday" earlier today (March 18) to talk about the cause for which he's willing to get thrown behind bars.
Leading into the segment, host Chris Wallace started off by telling Clooney that he's the only reason that Sudan was included in the show's topics of discussion, as he told, "I'm embarrassed to say this, but we would not be doing this segment, frankly, on Sudan if you weren't a part of it... Is that the point?"
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.
Joined by his Marchesa clad girlfriend Stacy Keibler, the “Leatherheads” hunk looked dashing in and Armani tux as he headed inside Los Angeles’ Kodak Theatre after posing for a few rounds of shutterbug shots.
It's the most highly-anticipated event of the awards show season, and the red carpet at the Kodak Theatre will soon be overflowing with the top names in show business.
With the final preparations being tended to, the 84th Annual Academy Awards will kick off on ABC with red carpet coverage beginning at 7 PM ET while the ceremony officially gets underway at 8:25 PM ET on Sunday (February 26).
