McKellen & Stewart Return To The Stage

After years of the bald pate that has made him utterly recognizable from his days as Jean-Luc Picard through X-Men‘s Professor X, Patrick Stewart is opting for silver-fox elegance alongside fellow Marvel universe-er Ian McKellen for a pair of stage classics. This shot, exclusively from EW.com, is from Harold Pinter’s “No Man’s Land,” in which Stewart plays Hirst opposite McKellen’s Spooner, as a pair of men in a North West London house sizing each other up over a hot summer night. Performing in repertory with “No Man’s Land” will be Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot,” with Stewart and McKellen taking on Vladimir and Estragon, respectively. Joining them for both productions will be Billy Crudup (“Arcadia”) and Shuler Hensley (“Oklahoma!”). “No Man’s Land” is now playing at Berkeley Rep through Aug. 31 before its Broadway bow this fall.
