Chester Marlon Hanks, who is often referred to as Chet Hanks, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson’s elder son.
Having inherited his parents’ acting skills, Chet had parts in Empire, Shameless, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Tales and Maron television series. His feature film credits include Fantastic Four, Project X, Larry Crowne plus Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Also, like his mother, Chet Hanks is engaged in music. He first attracted attention by rapping under stage name Chet Haze plus releasing a remix for Wiz Khalifa’s song Black & Yellow titled White and Purple. He later was a member of FTRZ band. And now, Chester makes music with Drew Arthur, performing in Something Out West band.
In 2016, Chet welcomed his daughter Michaiah with his girlfriend Tiffany Miles. He credits Michaiah as the person who saved his life. The thing is that Chet struggled with drug addiction since he was 16, but only his daughter inspired him to become sober.
Chet calls himself a black sheep of the family as his behavior is often misunderstood. Thus, at 2020 Golden Globes, he appeared on the red carpet and was filmed speaking in Jamaican patois. That caused mixed opinions and many people criticized him for that. However, Chet told that it was a joke. Moreover, he added that he loved learning other cultures and languages. By the way, the young man is good at speaking Spanish.
A curious fact: Chet’s favorite movie starring his famed dad is Road to Perdition.
