Regé-Jean Page, the dreamy Duke of Hastings on Netflix’s runaway success Bridgerton, will host next week’s Saturday Night Live. The familiar corkboard reveal came during this week’s broadcast, hosted by Regina King. Page uploaded the image to his Instagram account.
In an interview with V.F., Page, a former drummer, remarked that his personal iTunes account was “thoroughly, thoroughly splintered. You’ll get Tracy Chapman one minute, thrash metal the next, and then Vivaldi. It confuses people to no end.” On SNL he’ll be introducing rapper Bad Bunny, currently up for two Grammy Awards. (One for Best Duo/Group performance with J Balvin, Dua Lipa, and Tainy for the track “Un Dia (One Day)” and the other for Best Latin Pop or Urban Album for his release YHLQMDLG.)
Bridgerton, created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes, is one of Netflix’s top-streamed series ever. It has been renewed for a second season, and Page’s name has been floated as a possible replacement for Daniel Craig in the James Bond franchise.
For those who can’t wait until Saturday for their next Regé-Jean Page fix, maybe check out the outstanding film Sylvie’s Love, streaming on Amazon Prime, in which he has a supporting role.
