Hanks was originally supposed to appear on the Instagram Live series Baited With Ziwe, but the host was finally able to get him to appear on the talk show after another guest dropped out. “He randomly texted me, like, congratulating me on my work and then I asked him, like, ‘Oh hey, do you wanna do the show?’” she recalls to E.T., explaining that once he was on set, he quickly won over the crew. “The crew sort of turns against me. There’s nothing on video that could capture the way in which they sort of walked away from me and into the arms of Chet Hanks.” Ziwe adds: “I was so delighted. He had been someone who I thought would be an iconic guest for years and I think that interview was an iconic interview."
