Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen

Check out this delightful pairing of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen on Charlie Rose. The duo of Sirs talk their acting careers from the National Shakespeare Theater to Hollywood, from "Star Trek"'s Captain Jean-Luc Picard and "The Lord of the Rings"' Gandalf to Professor X and Magneto in "X-Men," when they became close friends. (Stewart tweeted their adorable Thanksgiving pic, above, and McKellen officiated at his recent wedding, right.)

They've got a current repertory engagement on Broadway in two two-handers, Harold Pinter's "No Man's Land" (it was Stewart's idea for him to take the Ralph Richardson part and give McKellan the showier John Gielgud role) and Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot," which they had already mounted in London.

Upcoming is next summer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," where the two elder statesmen co-mingle with their characters' younger selves (played by Michael Fassbender as the young Magneto, and James McAvoy as the young Charles Xavier). Trailer here.
