Hollywood has a new favorite bromance.

Twitter took note of 30 Rock actor Jack McBrayer cheering on Alexander Skarsgård at the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards as he won a trophy for his performance in Big Little Lies. But the adorable moment wasn’t just a circumstance of seating arrangements — Skarsgård brought longtime bestie McBrayer as his plus-one.

Writer Jarett Wieselman pointed out on Twitter that the two are actually pals that go way back. In fact, this wasn’t the first time McBrayer was on hand to celebrate the 41-year-old star — he was also at the 2017 Emmy Awards, where Skarsgård shared a photo to Instagram of his pal posing with the award, as well as at the Golden Globes earlier this month.

Back in 2012, McBrayer posed with Skarsgard while attending the True Blood season 5 premiere after party.

The seemingly unlikely duo also starred in a collaboration with Funny Or Die, where they took a nine-day journey to the Arctic on a Greenpeace boat.

“We were incredibly close until we spent nine days together on a boat in bunk beds,” Skarsgård joked in a November 2015 interview with Esquire.

McBrayer also made an appearance on Skarsgård’s Instagram in May, with a silly picture of the actor smiling next to a bright light captioned, “Jack hates the spotlight.”

The 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards was broadcast live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on both TNT and TBS.
