We would have LOVED to be there!
One played Harry Potter on screen in Harry Potter, the other played Harry Potter in A Very Potter Musical. Now Darren Criss is taking over Daniel Radcliffe's role in the Broadway production of How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying — and they only just met!
"Somebody showed me a very doctored photograph of our meeting; there were no photographs at our meeting, so if that's what people are interested in, they're going to be disappointed."
To help us cope with the overwhelming disappointment, Dan told us what how it all went down. He explained:
"I had a lovely chat with him, talked about the show, I don't really deign to give advice, but I gave him my number and same with Nick Jonas and said, you know, 'Contact me if you've got anything to ask. I'm always around.' I passed on a joke to him that Matthew Broderick gave to me which Robert Morse gave to Matthew Broderick. So that's become sort of a legacy joke now, which is nice."
An inside joke for people who've played J. Pierrepont Finch! LOVE IT!
But next time they need to pack a camera. For dork-gasm's sake.
