Known for playing Harry Potter in viral online parodies, Glee’s Darren Criss is in talks to replace Daniel Radcliffe in the Broadway musical How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. Fandoms collide much?

As for Darren’s Glee stint, Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox and exec producer Ryan Murphy have already given him their blessing. If the project pushes through, Darren would only miss an episode and a half of Glee. He'd have two weeks of rehearsals in December and be onstage from January 3 to 22.

For his part, Daniel is leaving the successful Broadway show to return to movies in January.
