Richard Armitage to enter lucrative NFT market

Richard Armitage’s agent is expected today to announce the actor’s immediate entry into the new and very volatile NFT market.

For his NFT, the actor hopes to capitalize on his love of skiing.

One possibility would be for him to open his own “Bored Ape Ski Club,” as a spin-off to the very popular NFT venture beloved of celebrities and fans alike. He would be developing further figures based on the “Ski Bum” collectible, which lives on the Ethereum blockchain.

Armitage poses with some potential designs for the Bored Ape Ski Club.


Armitage is also considering more unique NFT projects. Since the strong success of his costume sale in 2021, the possibility of using NFTs to monetize the more artistic aspects of his own role preparation has come into focus.


Possible future NFT? A photo Armitage created while practicing his camera skills for Stay Close.

He will also be able to tap into the deep archives of his early career photo archives in creating his own inimitable NFTs.

Sheep dung Armitage photographed while preparing for the role of John Standring. Collectors will have the opportunity to own the exclusive intellectual property rights to this highly sought-after NFT.

Armitage’s agent has long been concerned about why Armitage’s career has not been a more prominent one. Armitage saw the extreme environmental cost of bitcoin mining as an insurmountable obstacle to this newly popular career approach, but recent efforts to change the code to reduce the environmental cost of crypocurrencies dissolved his final reservations. He is reportedly ready to dive in as early as today. United Agents is confident that this activity will not only fatten Armitage’s wallet, but also give him an increased visibility that will lead to more interesting role offers.

Another possible NFT expected to be available very soon: a copy of Monet’s London paintings produced while preparing for The Impressionists.

If you don’t know what NFTs are, don’t feel bad. I’m pretty sure Richard Armitage has never heard of them either. April Fool!

    • I do, too, because people keep saying it’s not exactly the same as owning intellectual property. Maybe it’s just like the summit of collecting, i.e., owning the original of all the images that circulate around the web.

    NFTs make absolutely no sense to me either. ๐Ÿ˜œ


    • Limits the range of the joke — none of us know what we’re joking about!

      I will, however, note that in 2012 or 2013 my joke was that Armitage was going full scale into social media, and he did it in 2014. So maybe this is coming!

  8. A brilliant fool! ‘Fungible’ is such a whimsical word, it’s like something Edward Lear would invent.

    • Thanks. Palm Sunday for you today?


      • Yes, my granny whom I share a bday with was called Florica, flower name, so this used to be a big family day in the past… I never thought about this change… Will try to at least paint some eggs for Easter. Getting ready for trip home mid May to try sort things,or make a start. Never been home alone, so much change. Also time seems to fly. I will need to think about what I’ll do with holidays before Xmas comes around.

        • (((Hari))). I’ve been lucky in that I’ve always gotten invitations when I needed them, but it is weird to have to think consciously about planning these things. I wish you good luck with the administration. It has taken me a lot more energy than I would have guessed.
