Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are both incredibly talented actors, and at the respective ages of 75 and 76, have enjoyed long and accomplished careers. They've also acted together several times over the years in a range of projects, from small plays all the way up to blockbuster franchises such as X-Men. Needless to say, the two are very good friends.
That's what makes it so fun to see them mess around. Recently, both put their famously dramatic voices to work reciting Taylor Swift lyrics, and the results were pretty much what you'd expect: a particularly esteemed brand of humor.
Listen to Stewart tackle "Blank Space" and McKellen nail "Bad Blood," and bask in their eloquence:
First "Blank Space"
Then "Bad Blood"
Stewart took to Twitter after to ask Swift an all important question: "May we join the squad?"
Swift was beyond excited to have the two legends lend their voices to her lyrics and tweeted back her approval:
Stewart was pumped about joining:
The old man knows his way around Twitter better than most 75-year-olds. Ultimate squad goals indeed.
