Criss fans (not to mention "Potter" devotees) must be squealing with delight at the news as the move would represent a full-circle moment for the star. Criss gained fame pre-"Glee" thanks to his portrayal of Harry Potter in the viral hit musical show "A Very Potter Musical" -- a parody of the "Harry Potter" books and films. And now he might take over for the actor that originated the role of Potter on the silver screen.
