‘Bridgerton’ fans are calling for Regé-Jean Page to be the next James Bond

As Daniel Craig is making his final appearance as James Bond in the upcoming film No Time to Die (which will premiere in April), fans started to speculate on who should take on the role of the famed British Secret Intelligence agent next.

Among the possible candidates are Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, and James Norton. However, following the grand success of Netflix’s latest period drama Bridgerton (under Shonda Rhimes’ overall deal with the streamer), the focus shifted toward actor Regé-Jean Page.

Page has won the hearts of millions as Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. Netflix announced that 63 million households have streamed Bridgerton since its debut on December 25.

A recent Glamour Magazine article suggests that if viewers of the show had a say on who should be the next 007, it would be Page. And, if it so happens, that the breakout star is offered the part and he accepts it, Page would make franchise history as the first Black Bond.

The ‘Regé-Jean Page for James Bond’ campaign is gaining traction on Twitter. One user posted, “Guys, GUYS, hear me out: Regé-Jean Page as the next Bond.”

Another tweeted, “Just finished watching Bridgerton on Netflix. Wow! Regé-Jean Page should be the next man to play James Bond. He is so handsome, smooth and debonair!”

And there are so many more!

We will not know the final decision on who will continue to carry the torch until, probably, next year. In the meantime, here is the latest Ladbrokes list of James Bond frontrunners (posted by Variety):

Tom Hardy – 6/4
James Norton – 7/4
Idris Elba – 7/2
Regé-Jean Page – 5/1
Sam Heughan – 6/1
Richard Madden – 6/1
Jack Lowden – 8/1
Cillian Murphy – 10/1
