From boy wizard to rom-com leading man, Daniel Radcliffe has come a long way.

The Harry Potter actor’s latest project, What If, casts him as an adorably awkward heartthrob stuck squarely in the friend zone. His character, Wallace, falls hard for Chantry (Zoe Kazan), seemingly his soulmate except for the fact that she already has a boyfriend.

Can’t wait to see how their relationship pans out? PEOPLE has an exclusive clip from the movie that shows Wallace and Chantry deciding to take their friendship to the next level – by becoming drinking buddies, that is.

“This, right now, this is the high point of my social calendar,” Chantry quips of their daytime coffee date.

See more sparks start to fly in the video above. What If, also starring Girls’s Adam Driver and The Secret Life of the American Teenager’s Megan Park, hits theaters nationwide Aug. 22.
