Yep, the guy in that clip is Tom Hanks' son.
Tom Hanks, the beloved actor from Forrest Gump, Toy Story, and Castaway, literally has a son who helped popularise the term 'White Boy Summer'.
Naturally, on her self-named SHOWTIME series, Ziwe roasted Chet for his song White Boy Summer and asked if he'd like to apologise to marginalised communities for his god-awful impressions and cultural appropriation.
But Chet didn't apologise and continued to do unsolicited impressions during the interview – as you can see above.
At one point, a shirtless Chet bounced on a workout ball and said: "I don't really have any plans," before doing a pretty creepy impression of the Joker.
After some more weird impressions and some concerned looks from Ziwe, Chet impersonates Denzel Washington shouting the actor's iconic line from American Gangster: "They tried to kill my wife!"

Needless to say, it went down horribly, and while the episode seemed set to unravel, Ziwe does an excellent job of steering the interview.
The host asked the (then-clothed) rapper how ‘White Boy Summer’ was different from the past 400 summers in American history, and he was left looking a little sheepish because, well, Ziwe was right.
After a pause, Chet replied to the host: “I don’t know. [It] started with just me, I got a fresh a** haircut, and I was feeling myself, so I posted a video on my Instagram.”
Ziwe asked: “Do all of your songs come from her super iconic quotes?”
He replied: “Maybe. Are you trying to make me nervous?”
She added: “Are you afraid of black women?”
The actor and rapper said: “No," to which Ziwe quipped back: “Maybe you should be."
And that was actually one of the better clips from the interview, because things deteriorated pretty quickly.

Next Ziwe asked: "Are there any marginalised communities you want to apologise to? I don't know, maybe the Patois community?"
This is about Chet using Jamaican Patois at the Golden Globes.
After another very awkward pause, Chet shook his head and said: 'No.'
"I don't think I’ve done anything truly offensive," he added.
Ziwe responded by saying: "You don’t see it as cultural appropriation? You see it as a celebration of culture? And like, social justice warriors can like go kick rocks?"
Chet replied: "Yeah," before adding: "I 100 percent agree. Social justice warriors can kick rocks."
