Colton Haynes hits on Nick Robinson in cute deleted 'Love, Simon' scene

We can't believe this didn't make the final edit.

Love, Simon quickly worked its way into audiences' hearts this year with its refreshingly uplifting take on the gay teen high school experience - and while Greg Berlanti's romantic comedy drama is already picture perfect in our eyes, there's one scene we wish had made the final edit.

A newly-released deleted scene sees a welcome cameo American Horror Story star Colton Haynes, who plays a college student who hits on Nick Robinson's Simon after he sneaks into a gay club for the first time.

It's not surprising to see an appearance from Colton, who recently filed for divorce from his husband of six months, Jeff Leatham: The former Teen Wolf star previously worked with Love, Simon director Greg Berlanti during his time on The CW's superhero series Arrow.

While Colton might have been left on the cutting room floor, Love, Simon still proved a hit at the box office, raking in almost $60 million worldwide from a budget of $17 million, and become 20th Century Fox's third highest-grossing teen romance after The Fault in Our Stars and Baz Luhrman's Romeo + Juliet.
