Is there a bromance brewing?

The Twittersphere got a double dose of cuteness earlier this week when Lin-Manuel Miranda and Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo gushed over each other in a sweet tweet exchange.

It all began when the Hamilton star tweeted a gif of Matarazzo smiling, writing, "Good morning. Your smile is worth a fortune, and yours to spend as you wish."

An excited Matarazzo, 14, replied to the star's tweet, writing, "OMG, I just died! Thanks, man."

But the exchange didn't end there.

"No, you LIVED! YOU'RE SO GOOD!" Miranda tweeted out. And Matarazzo replied: "I wish I could 'like' this a million times."
