Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Warner Bros.



Nice try, Malfoy.

It is truly delightful to see how close the "Harry Potter" film stars are in real life. It has been seven years since the final movie, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2," was released in theaters. Tom Felton's Slytherin Draco Malfoy bullied Matthew Lewis' Gryffindor Neville Longbottom throughout the eight-film series. But outside of the film set, the two actors are clearly good friends and have shared a few photos together.

The latest photo is a story in two parts -- Tom Felton's version, trying to get Matthew Lewis to slither in to Slytherin; and Matthew Lewis' "Planet of the Apes"-inspired clapback to shut the serpent down:





Yes, Neville. Not that all Slytherins are bad. We learned by the end of "Harry Potter" that it's OK to be sorted into Slytherin house because it produced some brave and deep-down-all-right wizards like Severus Snape. The play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" explored that idea in more detail.

But Neville is a Gryffindor through-and-through, so he wasn't really the best choice to convert.
