Criss captioned the photo writing, "Me, @ChordOverstreet & @SkylarAstin... And a #DramaticSelfie for you all." The actor added, "So glad to have our buddy Skylar on #Glee." Woo hoo!

The star of the new TBS comedy Ground Floor has remained a close friend of Glee's leading lady Lea Michele they starred in Broadway's Spring Awakening seven years ago. Unfortunately it looks like Astin and his bestie will not be sharing any scenes together because the triple-threat actor will be spending his time on the McKinley side of the show.

Details about this character are being kept very hush-hush, but we're sure that the powers-that-be at Glee will definitely give Astin his time to shine with a microphone in hand. We can't wait!

Glee returns to Fox in February.
