Charles Melton.

Who dat, you ask?

Apart from being a dead ringer for Ross, Charles looks hella familiar ‘cause he’s also starred in both Glee (as Sam’s roommate, Gavin) and American Horror Story: Hotel (as Mr. Wu).

Yep, we approve, but what does Ross think of his replacement?

Here’s your answer: Ross took to Twitter to share his verdict and it’s the sweetest thing you’ll see all day:

“I’m so happy that they gave me, an Asian American, the chance to play a traditionally Caucasian character, Reggie,” Ross said. “In light of recent casting news, I’m even more excited and proud that they decided to keep Reggie Asian-American. It means a lot to me. It means a lot to the Asian-American community, so I just wanted to say thank you guys one more time. I support Charles Melton all the way.”

Happy days y’all.
