Chet Hanks, a rapper and son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, called his best imitation of the Joker on his show during an interview with “Showtime” comedian Ziwe Fumudoh.
A clip from the interview on the comedian’s TikTok account shows Hanks reciting lines from actor Heath Ledger in “The Dark Knight” when Ledger portrayed the iconic character.
“Do I look like a guy with a plan?” Hanks says while sitting on a yoga ball.
He jumps from the prankster villain to the other lines rapidly.
“RIP Heath,” Hanks says later.
Throughout the impression, Ziwe doesn’t say a word and appears stunned.
“I didn’t ask [Hanks] to impersonate [Joker] And yet,” reads the caption of the clip.
Hanks later gives the impression of Denzel Washington in “American Gangster” and yells at Washington’s son, John David Washington.

Ziwe also teased other clips from the interview on TikTok, in which she asked if Hanks wanted to apologize to “any marginalized communities.”
Hanks has faced criticism on social media for using patois, such as in a 2020 Instagram video shot from the Golden Globes red carpet.
Hanks’ caption read, “The whole family of Big Up Fimi may be coming to the DI Awards soon.
BuzzFeed reported that Hanks defended his fake accent on the social network Clubhouse in 2020.
In his interview with Zive, Hanks said that he doesn’t think he has “really” done anything “offensive”.
“You don’t see it as cultural appropriation; You see it as a celebration of culture?” Ziwe asked.
“And then it’s like Social Justice Warriors, Kick Rocks might like to go,” Ziwe said.
“Yes. Yes. Yes,” Hanks replied.
Ziv reaffirmed Hanks’ reply with a quick “no comment” and “got it”: “Social Justice Warriors can kick rocks.”
Zivee’s interview with Hanks aired less than a month after her appearance on the FX comedy series “Atlanta.”
In an apparent reference to his real-life accent controversy, Hanks appeared in the episode “Trini 2D Bone”, a butchery from Trinidad and Tobago, with a half-baked accent.
