Happy National Best Friends Day!

In honor of the annual celebration of friendship, EW brought together real-life besties Sterling K. Brown and Brian Tyree Henry — who appear together in Hotel Artemis, out today — and challenged them to a little round of the newlywed game.

After some gentle ribbing — “It’s not a race, Sterling!” — the This Is Us and Atlanta actors tested their knowledge of each other by answering simple questions about their tastes and careers. Proving they are true BFFs, the stars both remembered where they met, agreed without a moment’s hesitation on Brown’s favorite word, and even made a few of the same sketches when naming each other’s most-used emojis (the Wakanda Forever salute being one of them, obviously).

Watch the video above to see whether Henry remembered Brown’s character name in Black Panther, which of Henry’s roles Brown wishes he could play, and whether there’s any consensus regarding who is a better singer.

Hotel Artemis is in theaters now.
