Susan Sarandon isn't the only celeb participating in the Occupy Wall Street protests in NYC.

Gossip guy Penn Badgley was spotted picketing himself this week—carrying a sign and all. How very Dan Humphrey of him!

The actor said he felt compelled to come down after a friend was arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge.

"I mean, listen, it's cheesy," he said, "but I want to do whatever I can. Let's be honest: I'm on f--king Gossip Girl. It's absurd that celebrity power is what it is, but, like, use any tool you have, you know?"

George Clooney says he also supports the movement against corporate greed, but admits he needs to educate himself more about the specifics...

"It seems great," he told me at the Ides of March premiere this week in NYC. "I feel terrible because we've been on tour for so long, I haven't quite been able to catch up with the whole thing. I saw some women get maced in the face or something."

Although George says he's "got to learn more," he stands behind our president despite the criticism of Obama

"I'm a Democrat so I support Democrats," he explained Wednesday night. "I'm not one of those people that runs and hides when things start going south."

Susan Sarandon, Mark Ruffalo, Russell Simmons and Michael Moore have also been spotted picketing at Zuccotti Park.
