Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellan: Bromance of the century

Sarah grew up in Monterey, CA and now lives in Los Angeles. When she's not writing, you can find her enjoying a good book, fine wine, sunflowers and long walks on the beach.

It seriously doesn't get any cuter than these two. There's plenty of competition in the "best bromance" category, but Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellan are a lock for the title.

Stewart has been in New York City with his bestie McKellan to perform on Broadway in two plays: Harold Pinter's No Man's Land and Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot. It's common knowledge that the rehearsal and performance schedules for productions of such magnitude are grueling, but that didn't stop these two from playing the roles of good old-fashioned tourists.

The end of their Broadway run is coming up soon and Stewart took to Twitter to post a photographic two-week countdown and the result is nothing short of delightful.

Here's a look at #gogodididonyc. It's enough to leave any Anglophile satisfied.

Stewart starts with a nod to the Standard American Diet. U.S. portions are quite a bit larger than European portions, after all.

Stewart and McKellan took Coney Island next, and, boy, do we suddenly want to bring bowler hats back in a big way.

McKellan was certainly rethinking his decision to hop aboard the Wonder Wheel. But that's OK; Stewart was there to comfort him in his time of need. He owes him after all — McKellan married Stewart and his wife.

From there, the two visited more important American landmarks.

And got a little cheeky.

They even ran into royalty from back home.

In their final days, the two end the anthology by showcasing their friendship and bidding adieu.

We didn't think it would be possible to top Stewart and McKellen's Super Bowl XLVIII TwitPic, but it's been done.
