In 2008, Chris brought Ben Stiller
, his co-star from the animated Madagascar
movies, to The Oprah Show
. In the children's movies, Ben is the voice of Alex, a lion born in the Central Park Zoo, and Chris is the voice of Marty, a zebra with a signature catchphrase—"crackalackin."
"My kids—especially my youngest—she likes to brag that her dad is the zebra from Madagascar
," Chris said. "So any time there's a birthday party, I have to say 'crackalackin' all day."
