Regé-Jean Page is on the list of favorite actors to play the most super secret agent in the world and after his exit from the most popular Netflix series of the moment, the British actor might have his next exciting role. Daniel Craig is our current 007 agent but after the upcoming movie 'No Time to Die' he will be quitting the role after five movies. This releases the opportunity and the chances for all British actors to become the beloved character. Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and Pierce Brosnan are some of the legendary actors we have seen as the MI6 spy James Bond.


Page started to be on the radar after his role as The Duke of Hasting in the Netflix series Bridgerton but sadly the fans will not be seeing him in Season 2 after it was announced his character does not appear in what happens next in the story. We should have seen it coming because Julia Quinn's eight historical novels, on which the show is based, each focuses on a different Bridgerton sibling's search for true love. Regé-Jean is filming another Netflix project 'The Gray Man', next to Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans. Then he will begin working on the 'Dungeons and Dragons' film. Could it be possible that Regé-Jean Page will be our next James Bond?

The Bridgerton star spoke to The Mirror and finally, addressed the rumors "Ah, the 'B' word," he said when asked about Bond. "I think that if you are British, and you do anything of note that other people take notice of, then people will start talking about that.” He continued, "I think that’s fairly normal, and I'm flattered to be in the category of Brits that people have noticed," he said, "Nothing more – or less – than that." He then added subtly addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, "I think the concept of having plans at this moment in history is mildly hilarious. So I've given up on making them."

Despite being as ambiguous as it gets, these rumors started in January during an interview with Jimmy Fallon where for the first time he commented about this. At the time he said the Internet thinks a lot of things but about this specific theory, he is grateful. “that’s one of the more pleasant ones, So, I am pleased as far as that goes.” The list of possible actors to play James Bond include Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Henry Cavill, Michael Fassbender, Damian Lewis, Tom Hiddleston, Andrew Lincoln, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
