If ever there were a moment we wished we possessed magical powers of transfiguration, that moment is now. If we did, we'd transfigure ourselves right into This Is Us star Chrissy Metz — 'cause in a photo currently going viral on Twitter, Metz finds herself smack-dab in the middle of a love sandwich, courtesy of her co-stars Sterling K. Brown and Justin Hartley.

On the plus side, the photo is further proof that Brown, Metz and Hartley can in fact get even cuter than we already thought knew they were. Alternately, we're not part of their precious squad, which gives us a serious case of sad-face emoji.

The actors have obviously formed a strong bond playing the beloved "Big Three" on This Is Us, also known on the show as siblings Randall, Kate and Kevin.


The pic comes courtesy of a photo shoot with The Hollywood Reporter as part of the magazine's Sept. 13 cover (but also heaven). And although you'll have to read the feature for all the juicy details and accompanying photos, the benevolent Twitter gods did see it fit to share a second sneak peek.

Mmm. Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink. We are thirsty.

Sadly, we have a little longer to wait before these three grace our screens once more. Season 2 of This Is Us premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c, though, so don't forget to set your iCalendar reminders now. Until then, we can at least bide our time pretending to be Metz in this super-tasty sandwich.
