Well the person who extorted him over the video was actually a good friend of the actor. Mercury News reports that it was actor Jonathan Todd Jackson. Apparently they have been close friends for 15 years, and can be seen in several pics on social media together.

On social media Hart expressed his shock and disbelief. 

Jackson has been arrested and if convicted, it is being said that he could face up to four years in prison. Daily News says that Prosecutors are asking for $100,000 bail.
