His fans retweeted him onto the ice breaker ship as kind of a goofy gag. But when he got there, he revealed on social media, he didn't feel much like dancing anymore. He was "humbled" by the experience and the real-life conservation issues at stake.
But, as he put it, sometimes as an actor you have to do what you don't want to do. So he did his Chief Hopper dad dance for the cameras, as promised. He also seemed to scare away a few penguins in the process.
Watch his videos, they will make you smile and also maybe inspire you to get involved to help:
