We all know and love Regé-Jean Page as Bridgerton's Duke of Hastings, but now he's onto another role. This time, he's set to join a star-studded Russo Brothers' line-up for the new Netflix thriller, The Gray Man.
Since his recent hidden talent-revealing appearance on Saturday Night Live, the Bridgerton star has been pretty tight-lipped about his life and work, keeping die-hard fans in the dark about his future endeavors.
But Netflix has revealed that Page will be expanding beyond the Regency-era drama as he stars alongside Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas and other big-name beauties in the new movie.

The Gray Man—which will be directed by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo (Avengers: Endgame and is expected to feature large-scale action scenes—follows the story of a freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry. According to Deadline, the movie will feature Gosling as Gentry, who is "hunted across the globe" by Lloyd Hansen, a former CIA cohort played by Evans.
We hope it's going to be a hit, as it's set to be Netflix's priciest budget ever at a whopping $200 million, with a James Bond-esque franchise in talks for the future. The film is based off the 2009 novel of the same name by author Mark Greaney.
Production is set to start at the end of this month, so there's still no official trailer for the film and we're still waiting to hear who Regé-Jean Page will be playing among the A-list cast. The Bridgerton actor reacted to the casting news on his Instagram Stories, uploading several articles about the new role, which he fittingly captioned with a line of "mind-blown" emojis.

Netflix is still expected to confirm an official streaming date soon, but in the meantime, fans can keep up to date with the eligible bachelor on Instagram and Twitter.
