A British betting firm is laying odds on Bridgerton’s dashing Duke of Hastings, Regé-Jean Page being the next James Bond. Speculation reached a fever pitch when the
hot sexy handsome actor tweeted “Regency, royalty. Shaken and stirred,” which of course is a reference to how Bond likes his martini.
The firm Ladbrokes has upped Page’s chances from 40/1 to 5/1, almost neck-to-neck with fan-favorite Tom Hardy.
“Tom Hardy still leads the way as favorite, with James Norton close behind in second place,” said Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati. “But it really is all to play for in the race for 007 and RJP has a great chance if the odds are anything to go by.”
We’re still team Idris Elba though.
