‘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

Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F

Eddie Murphy’s daughter Bria Murphy has made a memorable cameo in the latest installment of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, ‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F.’ Bria, who is the oldest daughter of the iconic comedian and actor, plays a police officer who arrests her father’s character, Axel Foley, in the film.

‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F’ marks the return of Murphy as the wisecracking Detroit detective Axel Foley, 30 years after the release of Beverly Hills Cop III. The film, directed by Mark Molloy, sees Foley back in Beverly Hills to help his estranged daughter, played by Taylour Paige, who is in trouble with some dangerous individuals.

Bria’s appearance in the film is a family affair, as her husband, Michael Xavier, also stars in the movie as a police officer.

Eddie Murphy said his daughter’s role in the film was a surreal experience. In an interview, he shared that the scene where his son-in-law tases him in the neck was particularly memorable, especially since it happened shortly after his daughter’s wedding.

The movie, released on Netflix on July 3, 2024, has received mixed reviews. However, Eddie Murphy’s performance and his daughter’s cameo have been highlighted as some of the film’s most enjoyable moments.
