Best friends Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart could be the next big guests strutting down Taylor Swift's tour catwalk. She even gave the two a squad shout-out on Twitter:

In the past week, both gentlemen have done separate dramatic readings of the pop star's lyrics. McKellen, who stars in the new film Mr. Holmes, shared some of his "favorite lyrics" with Yahoo! viewers. Little did we know that he would soon read off the words to Swift's "Bad Blood" and Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk."

The Lord of the Rings star looked casual-chic in his blazer and tie-dyed shirt and donned a pair of glasses to make sure he got the lyrics just right.

Stewart played a game on NPR's Ask Me Another segment, where he recited Swift's "Blank Space" lyrics and fans had to guess what song it was. The full segment will air on Aug. 20.

We agree with Stewart: Can they join the squad, Taylor?
