Looks like our resident hot duke is trying to give us all heart palpitations. No, not the Duke of Sussex but the indomitable Duke of Hastings, aka Rege-Jean “his hotness” Page. Rege has signed on to two new projects. One of course is the upcoming Dungeons and Dragons flick in which he will star with Chris Pine. The other will be Netflix’s biggest budget project to date, The Gray Man, which is based on the debut book by Mark Greaney. The Gray Man will be directed by the Russo brothers. But that isn’t the important part. Not only will one of our favorite melanated goddesses, Alfre Woodard, be in it but Rege will be acting alongside Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling. I can’t wait to see that much fire on a screen. I may need to have a drool towel nearby to watch this film. Below are more details from Deadline:

The Gray Man is based on the debut novel by Mark Greaney, published in 2009 by Jove Books. It also is the first novel to feature the Gray Man, freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry. The action thriller will follow Gentry (Gosling) as he’s hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Evans), a former cohort at the CIA. The film is based on the first installment of the book series.

Thornton recently wrapped production on the fourth season of his Amazon series Goliath.was He also recently seen in the Sam Taylor-Johnson drama A Million Little Pieces. He is repped by WME, Media Talent Group and Myman Greenspan.

Page is best known for his breakout role in the Netflix series Bridgerton, which earned him a SAG and an NAACP Image Award noms for his individual performance, and recently signed on to star in the Paramount’s untitled Dungeons & Dragons pic. He also appeared in the Amazon pic Sylvie’s Love. He is repped by CAA, Mosaic, The Artists Partnership and Ziffren Brittenham.

Woodard recently received rave reviews for the drama Clemency. She can be seen next in Sony’s Fatherhood opposite Kevin Hart. She is repped by ICM Partners, Circle of Confusion and Gochman Law.

2022-23 are gonna be great years with a whole lot of eye candy on the screen and hopefully some amazing storytelling. I mean, who doesn’t want to see Rege-Jean’s smolder, Ryan Goslin’s chest and Chris Evans’s back? (I swear I am not objectifying them.) This movie is just fantasy pr0n for us middle-aged ladies. It has been a minute since I’ve seen Ryan and I love him in movies. Hopefully, Rege isn’t playing a bit part in either film and will get a good amount of screen time. I guess Netflix and some other studios are being smart and riding that Bridgerton train all the way to the bank. I have not read The Gray Man book so I am not sure how good the material is but I’ve seen few tweets from people who like it. I love intrigue and action with a bit of spy craft so this is right up my alley. Besides the leading men, I am happy our beautiful goddess Alfre got a role in the movie as well. I wonder if her character will be like the M in the Bond movies? I’m so excited to see more of Rege in his upcoming films and season two of Bridgerton.

    I think this just started filming? Lucky Ana huh? What a hot lineup. And all three can act. Definitely will be watching this. I don’t even care if there’s a story, but I’m sure there is. lol

  3. Laura says:

    I read the books, the 3rd is on hold for me at the library 👍 Another series in that vein which I like just a smidgen better are the Orphan X novels.

  4. Lauren says:

    I don’t know if my hormones are ready for this.

  5. Esmom says:

    I’m happy he is getting projects beyond Bridgerton. It’s great, I’m sure, to be known as the Hot Duke but at the same time it’s clear that his talents go far beyond that single role.

    • Becks1 says:

      Yes, I’m happy he’s getting work that seems to be very different from the Duke. Good for him!

  6. Becks1 says:

    I did not realize this was based on a book, i’ll have to download it this weekend. I wonder if he’s the villain in this movie, although it sounds like that’s Evans?

    Regardless glad to see that big roles are coming his way and that he’s not being typecast as the hot duke (although that wouldnt be so bad for the rest of us lol.) And I like Gosling and Evans (he’s so good in Knives Out) and of course Alfre. This seems like it could be really good, especially if Netflix isnt holding back, budget-wise.

  7. shabs says:

    Nothing in Bridgerton indicates that he’s a good actor but I suppose he’s pretty enough

    • Common sense says:

      You should watch Roots then because this man can act. After I saw him on roots I googled him to see what other shows he has been, that’s how captivated I was by his performance. I have been a big fan of his since then.

    • a reader says:

      He’s amazing in For the People (available on Hulu). The man can do it all!

    • try harder says:

      then it’s good men of colour and esp black men are finally benefiting from the “pretty but untalented” scheme, like mediocre white men have done for centuries 😉

  8. ReginaGeorge says:

    I think we can all agree this guy is very pretty. Like winner of the genetic lottery pretty. But I just don’t get any sex appeal from him. Don’t get me wrong, I find him beautiful and from what I have seen, including SNL, he’s a decent actor and seems like a decent guy, but, I just don’t get sexy from him. Also, I don’t think he had very good chemistry with the woman who played Daphne.

    • lucy2 says:

      I’m the reverse – I think he’s very sexy, but Chris and Ryan, though clearly attractive, don’t do much for me.
      I didn’t care for the Daphne character at all and couldn’t get why there was such fuss over her.

      Really glad to see Page getting some bigger roles though, after watching Bridgerton and his turn on SNL, I think he has big star potential.

  9. Lily says:

    Good god. I may be swayed to make this an exception to my general avoidance of film and TV with mostly male driven stories, protagonists, writers, directors and producers.

    Erm… IMDB says it’s about rival dudes saving… daughters? Great. That’s the story we need right now. Without it, how will girls learn who is going to rescue them? And how will men ever know their worth?

  10. Coolitude says:

    This is a smart choice of actors to get a big sucess. Women are happy they are loved and hyped with bridgerton. On the other hand, this is is a scenario that will attract men. Gosling is considered as serious, Evans was captain america

  11. Dlc says:

    Looks interesting. I read about Ana de Armas being cast and groaned a little though, which surprised me. I liked her in Knives Out, but the Benana romance is making her feel overexposed to me. Not great for her since I think she has only been in one major project with quite a few more in the pipeline.

    • Darla says:

      True, but we haven’t seen or heard from her since that split. He was the one doing all of the post-split performance art, topped by throwing out a lifesized cardboard cutout of her. He’s a real pissa isn’t he? She’s kept her head down which is smart. I would keep my next romance very low key if I were her. She can still come out on top.

  12. Size Does Matter says:

    I could use the drool towel just thinking about this.

  13. jferber says:

    Hell to the yes. Let 2021 begin!!!

  14. Mina_Esq says:

    I’m so glad the success of Bridgerton is translating into more big roles for Rege! So, we’ve covered off both of the hot Chris’s and one of the two hot Ryan’s. He needs to sign on to a movie with Reynolds, and then he will have a trilogy with all of our boyfriends in one place.

  15. Mee yo says:

    Gawd he’s pretty! I wish Muhammad Ali was alive and younger so they could have‘who’s prettier’ contests! 😁 he looks like he’ll age well too. I’m not an Evans acting fan. Nice to see but pushes his instrument. I’ve been waiting for him to get better or new acting coach. Ain’t seen it yet.

  16. Case says:

    Out of the three, Ryan Gosling does it for me the most. Gotta say I’m most excited for Ana, though – IMO she’s prettier than all of those dudes combined.

  17. Duchess of hazard says:

    He’s the definition of, “If you stay ready, you never have to be ready.” He stayed ready.

  18. newmenow says:

    Now, I can enjoy this actor as The Hot Duke and anything else he is cast in.
    Hot Duke + Chris Evans = me happily watching Netflix. I must be the only human that doesn’t watch Marvel movies, don’t care at all.

    Peaky Blinders new season is filming now. Yes! OMG, Cillian Murphy is fabulous, great show.

    Gotta hurry it up tho, once the weather warms a bit more I plan to be outside as much as possible.
    This covid vaccine needs to get a move on distribution. Amazon? Could Amazon be organizing it, they have delivered everything else in the year. lol

  19. The Recluse says:

    I hope this ends up being as fun as it sounds. What a cast!!!

  20. try harder says:

    He’s gorgeous! I need to check his work, because all I know from him comes from thirst accounts lol

  21. Midnight@theOasis says:

    Diane Keaton made a clip of herself with the Duke of Hastings😂

    • Normades says:

      Haha that’s excellent

      The duke can definitely act and he’s super versatile. He is definitely an upcoming star to watch
