Another day, another opportunity for "X-Men" star Sir Patrick Stewart to spy on his co-star and BFF Sir Ian McKellan. Stewart tweeted a photo of McKellen practicing his lines while sitting on a fire hydrant:

The actors are currently rehearsing for their Broadway performances of Harold Pinter's "No Man's Land" and Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot," in which Stewart will play writer Hirst and Vladimir, respectively, and McKellen will play Spooner and Estragon. The shows will debut at Broadway's Cort Theatre on Nov. 24. Tickets go on sale today.

The two recently reunited for an "X-Men" panel at Comic Con in San Diego.
