opkins has partnered with a Web3 creative studio Orange Comet to release NFTs. The “Eternal Collection" collection will portray his work as an actor like Odin in Marvel’s Thor movies or Hannibal Lecter from “The Silence of Lambs."

During an online press conference, the Oscar and BAFTA-winning actor described non-fungible tokens as "a blank canvas to create art in a new format," admitting that he was initially "nervous" about creating the collection.

But he forced himself to do it. "Experiment with everything, regardless of age. Don't let your age limit you. You've got this. There is nothing to gain or lose. Simply do it," he added.

The Web3 space "offers an incredible chance to interact with an audience in an entirely different way... I'm most likely the oldest guy in the NFT society and on social media, proving that anything is possible at any age," he added.

The first NFTs are set to go live on one of the biggest marketplaces, OpenSea. They'll be dropped in three phases, with releases planned for September already announced by their developers.

Earlier this summer, the actor has been asking for advice on what NFTs he should buy. He asked celebrities such as Snoop Dogg and Reese Witherspoon. Fallon responded by saying that there are "a bunch of great artists out there," that the NFT community is "a fun community in general," and that Hopkins should "DM" him to continue the conversation.

Jimmy Fallon has been involved in the NFT craze for some time now. He owns one of these popular items he showed on his “The Tonight Show” with Paris Hilton while she was the guest host.

The TV host possesses Bored Ape #599, which he purchased for around $216,000.

Meanwhile, Hopkins previously starred in "Zero Contact," a film that was released entirely as an NFTs via the movie streaming service VUELE last year.
