Daniel Radcliffe is headed to your TV screen in one of his most unexpected roles yet. The Harry Potter alum will star as an angel in the new TBS comedy Miracle Workers, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Radcliffe will portray Craig, a “low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers,” in the anthology series. And if you think this news might be too much for your little heart to handle, be careful: Craig’s boss (aka God) will be played by none other than comedy wizard Owen Wilson.

“Owen Wilson has long been a comic genius, and Daniel’s performance in last year’s Swiss Army Man really proved that there’s a sophisticated comedian under the surface of those brilliant dramatic chops.”

Of course, anyone who has watched Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince already knew that Radcliffe had serious comedy chops. Who could forget when Harry drank that vial of Liquid Luck and produced perhaps the funniest scene in Potter history?
