Forget Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon. The best bromance of 2013 is between Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. In addition to appearing together in the Broadway double feature of Waiting for Godot and No Man's Land (which run through March at the Cort Theater,) these besties seem to spend all of their time together offstage as well. Their photos on Twitter will make you rethink your closest relationships. 


Here are 5 reasons why Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen should be your best friends:


1. Their sworn allegiance to different teams is quelled only by their mutual misunderstanding of sports.

5. They're not jealous of new friends (even aliens from movies outside of their franchise.)
