Last week, George Clooney and a group of fellow protesters were arrested outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington D.C., protesting the Sudanese government for cutting off aide to a half-million citizens.  After being told three times by police that they were on private property, Clooney and the other protesters, which included several politicians and Martin Luther King III, were arrested for civil disobedience.  When questioned by authorities, George Clooney kept his sense of humor and identified himself as “Brad Pitt”.

Fellow protester and Clooney’s cellmate Fred Kramer, executive director of Jewish World Watch, told Access Hollywood about the events following their arrest,

“George was really the movie star gentlemen, he made everyone feel comfortable. He was cracking jokes.  When it came time to tell the Secret Service who we all were, he tried to pass himself off as Brad Pitt.”

Kramer also said that he and the other protesters used their time in jail to further discuss the situation in Sudan,

“The time in the cell was pretty incredible, it was like a little conference. We spent those couple of hours in the pokey sitting and talking about what could be done and how the United States government can lead the thought on this.”

According to MSNBC, Clooney was released a few hours later after paying a $100 fine.
