Regé-Jean Page Reacts to James Bond Rumors During 'Fallon' Interview (Video)

Regé-Jean Page, who plays the Duke of Hastings on the new Netflix series Bridgerton, is opening up about the rumors that he might play James Bond next.

The idea went viral on social media this week and the odds-makers who have been tracking the buzz for each actor in the running have started to favor Regé.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday night (January 8), Regé reacted to the buzz.

“I think the internet thinks a lot of things and that’s one of the more pleasant ones, so I am pleased as far as that goes,” Regé said.

He continued, “I think there might be an element of cultural translation to be done here.

You get the B word merit badge… I am very, very glad to have the badge. I’m glad to be in such wonderful company of people who have the badge. But it’s [just] a badge.”

Here is what Regé had to say about all those sex scenes in the show and comparisons to Fifty Shades of Grey.
