Cereal? Check. Spoons? Check. Matching milk mustaches? Check!

Former Private Practice star Taye Diggs has teamed up with Kellogg’s and the Got Milk? campaign to provide over one million breakfasts to kids in need.

And the doting dad is sharing the spotlight with someone special: his son Walker Nathaniel.

“Being able to shoot the Got Milk? ad with my son was one of the better times in life just because, obviously, the ad is going to last forever,” Diggs, 42, tells PEOPLE.

But while Diggs was more than ready to flash the camera his stellar smile, his 3½-year-old son needed a little more prompting from his parents.

“We had to constantly make up games and excuses just to keep him occupied,” the actor shares.

“So when it seems like he’s smiling, he’s actually roaring because he wanted to be a tiger.”

When he’s not posing alongside his famous father, Walker is busy brushing up on all of Michael Jackson‘s best dance moves.

“‘Smooth Criminal’ – he has the entire video memorized and acts it out, which is awesome to see,” says Diggs.
