Darren Criss songratulates Daniel Radcliffe after his performance in The Cripple of Inishmaan.

We're seeing double!

That's because we're getting two Harry Potters for the price of one!

Darren Criss went to the closing performance of The Cripple of Inishmaan on Broadway. And who just so happened to play said cripple? Daniel Radcliffe!

That's right. Darren, who got noticed after starring as Harry Potter in the viral hit A Very Potter Musical, snapped a selfie with the OG boy who lived.

But this wasn't the pair's first time meeting, though. They actually met during rehearsals for Broadway's How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying when Darren was taking over for Daniel.

Dan starred as Cripple Billy in the West End before taking the role to New York City for a limited run from April 20th, to July 20th.

We love seeing them pictured together, it's just too good for words!

Who knows, maybe a crossover between their two worlds is in our future?!
