Regererai "Rege-Jean" Page was discovered by one of the Russo brothers through Netflix's Bridgerton. "My wife is a huge Bridgerton fan. That's how we discovered him," says Joe Russo in this Insider article. "I saw him on 'Saturday Night Live' and I thought he was charismatic and really, really compelling and fun to watch and so we thought he'd be perfect as a villain," he added. 

During a virtual roundtable to promote the film, Regererai said that the homework he did for The Gray Man was more mental than physical. “Yeah, it was a lot of psychological prep for this one. Both Suzanne and Denny are manipulators, so there is a nice balance in the way The Gray Man has been written and presented, between physical action and psychological action. Denny manipulates people into their ‘physical action’ mode, so to speak. We (his and Jessica Henwick’s characters) pretty much send Ryan (Gosling) and Chris (Evans) to kick off each other, while we sit back and watch the chaos unfold. So that was great fun,” the actor concluded.
