  • Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page reacts to James Bond rumors.

  • Regé-Jean addressed the speculation while appearing virtually on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Bond. James Bond. If you've seen one episode of Shonda Rhimes' wildly popular Netflix original series debut, Bridgerton, then you know that Regé-Jean Page has the gravitas to play the famous spy. Ever since Regé-Jean captured the attention (...and hearts) of millions of fans, rumors have been circulating that he might become the next 007.

"I think the internet thinks a lot of things, and that's one of the more pleasant ones," Regé-Jean said while appearing virtually on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. "So I can please as far as that goes."

He continued, "I think there might be an element of cultural translation to be done here. Like if you're a Brit, and you do something of any kind of renowned that people regard well, then people start saying the 'B' word."

Bridgerton hasn't even been out a month (it premiered on Christmas) and fans are already calling for Regé-Jean to play the iconic role.

"I honestly don’t think we need another James Bond movie but the rumours that regé-jean page should be the next Bond is *chefs kiss*," one fan tweeted. Another wrote, "wouldnt be mad if rege-jean page became the new james bond tbh." One user added, "Not me FREAKING OUT when I found Rege Jean Page could potentially be the next Bond #Bridgerton."

While Regé-Jean does seem flattered by the rumors, he also made it clear that it's purely speculative. "It's like a merit badge, like the 'B' word merit badge," he continued. "I'm 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 a badge."

A girl can dream, right?
