The Sherlock star was pictured alongside his fluffy new friend while attending the New York premiere of animated movie Penguins of Madagascar last night.
Rather than bringing new fiancée Sophie Hunter along, the British actor found company at the event in the form of a life-size soft toy penguin.
Benedict voices a character in the brand new movie, which is a spinoff from the popular Madagascar film series. This one follows the adventures of the penguins as they become embroiled in their own spy thriller.
Penguins of Madagascar is released in the UK on 5 December.
It's been a pretty amazing end to the year for Benedict.
Not only has it been confirmed that Sherlock is returning to BBC One for a Christmas special in 2015 and new run the following year, but he's garnering Oscar buzz for his role as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game.
Oh, and he quietly became engaged to theatre director girlfriend Sophie Hunter. They announced their happy news via a discreet Times newspaper notification.
We wonder what next year will bring for him?!
