If it's Friday, it must mean Jane Fonda is getting arrested in Washington, D.C. — and this week, she recruited a costar to join her.

Fonda has vowed to "get arrested every Friday" for 14 weeks in climate change protests at the U.S. Capitol in what she's calling Fire Drill Fridays. After first getting arrested protesting last week, she was arrested in another demonstration Friday, as was her Grace and Frankie costar Sam Waterston, Deadline reports.

The 78-year-old actor, who advocated for the Green New Deal during the protest, said this was his first time being arrested, reports NBC News' Frank Thorp.

Fonda in an interview with the Los Angeles Times previously said that some of her costars, including Waterston and Lilly Tomlin, would be joining her for the protests, and she added she might ask Martin Sheen to join as well. The protests will continue, potentially with rotating celebrity guests, for four months. Brendan Morrow
