Rege-Jean Page sings ‘like an angel’ on the audio drama for The Sandman

I don’t think I could love Rege-Jean “The God” Page any more than I already do. Not only is the man gorgeous with the best brooding face, he is also a great actor, thoughtful, and pro-feminism. From his turn on SNL, we know that Rege has great comedic timing. We also got a glimpse of Rege’s vocal chops on SNL, too. Recently Audible posted a 30 second snippet of Rege co-narrating the audio drama for The Sandman II audio book. Rege is heard singing beautifully, in Greek, as Orpheus. The man sang like a damn angel, in GREEK! Co-executive producer of The Sandman, Dirk Maggs, took to Twitter to wax poetic about Rege’s beautiful voice. Below are a few more details via Hollywood Life. The tweet is at the end of the post:

As if we needed another reason to obsess over the Duke of Hastings. Rege-Jean Page, 31, sent Bridgerton fans into a frenzy when audible released a clip of the actor singing on Oct. 7.

The hunk, who voices the character of Orpheus in the audio drama adaptation of The Sandman, sang in Greek for Act II of the drama. Co-executive producer and director of the audio play Dirk Maggs was impressed, to say the least.

“We have Rege-Jean Page as Orpheus, and it turns out that Rege-Jean Page is not only an excellent actor and an outrageously good-looking chap. He also sings like an angel,” Dirk states in the 30-second clip. “I’ve been, and I’ve got to say, it still sends shivers up my spine.”

Ya’ll I wasn’t ready. Is there anything this man can’t do? Like he is a literal walking sexy billboard of masculine hotness and I just can’t. When I heard Rege’s voice I think my mouth dropped. I could not believe that he could sing like that. And the fact that he was “sanging” in Greek just messed up my whole life. My damned inner middle aged thotiana came out like someone lit a fire under her. I may have to reactivate my Audible account for just a month so I can get my hands on that Sandman audio. It’s out now! I am so excited to have some of my favorite characters from Greek mythology in the series. I am also looking forward to hearing James McAvoy as Morpheus, Kat Dennings as Death and Emma Corrin in the series. Anyways, Rege continues to surprise me. I cannot wait to see what he gets up to next outside of acting. I have a feeling that Rege has a long illustrious career ahead of him. There is no limit to where his talent will take him.

    He is just too ridiculously, stupendously, thrillingly handsome AND talented AND a great guy? Lawd have mercy!!

  2. Soapboxpudding says:

    Can’t wait! I’m listening to The Sandman part I right now and it’s beyond excellent. I highly recommend the Neverwhere audio drama (also stars James McAvoy and a stellar cast) if you haven’t heard it before.

  3. Abby says:

    Swoon. He’s just the total package. I hope his star rises so far!

    He was one of my favorite SNL hosts in recent years – not just because he was easy on the eyes lol – but he was legitimately funny. Comedic timing is tricky and he was good at it. And his singing surprised me, I remember thinking “oh he’s going to be a HUGE star.” He’s gorgeous, looks great in a suit, is a good dramatic actor, he’s funny, he can sing – AND he can make fun of himself.

    My husband for some reason has an audible subscription (he accidentally signed up and now I told him not to cancel because I want his credits and once you cancel you lose the credits apparently), so now I want this, lol.

      Ha! I am a voracious reader and my husband prefers audiobooks. I get stressed borrowing long audiobooks from the library app because I run out of time before I have to return them, but my husband shared his audible account with me. It feels like cheating to get long books like Obamas memoir for ONE CREDIT! I love it. He always has extra credits for me to use, and he listens to the books I get too. Win win.

    • Green Desert says:

      Totally agree on the SNL thing, @Becks1. I remember watching it and thinking my god, he can do comedy too! I really hope he continues his upward trajectory. So much talent.

  5. SarahCS says:

    Ooh this does sound good. I listen to my audiobooks all the time but haven’t added to my audible collection in a could of years plus I love the Greek myths (highly recommend Stephen Fry’s three books in this area plus he narrates them himself which is a bonus). Time to expand the collection.

  6. Soni says:

    I have not been impressed with any of his acting (of which there hasn’t been much anyway).

  7. Chantal says:

    Dang it! Now I have to buy more credits so I can get this. It sounds fascinating and I’ve always liked Greek mythology. Glad he’s showcasing his many talents. I love a man who is multi-talented and gorgeous!

    When is he the next Bond?
