Other Celebs Acting Up in Crypto Projects

In July last year, pandemic-based movie Zero Contact, starring Anthony Hopkins, was offered for sale as an NFT and later released to Vuele, a direct-to-consumer NFT viewing platform.

In the same month of 2021, the NFT series Stoner Cats launched. Created and produced by actor Mila Kunis, the animated series featured an A-list cast including Ashton Kutcher, Seth MacFarlane, Chris Rock and Jane Fonda voice acting as a group of sentient cartoon cats, with Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin in a cameo role. The series required viewers to mint their access to the first five-minute episode.
