Sir Ian McKellen to Marry Patrick Stewart (Not Like That)


In a story guaranteed to warm the heart of even the bluest mutant, Sir Ian McKellen has announced that he will be officiating at the wedding of his X-Men co-star Patrick Stewart.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, McKellen broke the geek-pleasing news on the U.K.’s Jonathan Ross Show. While he’s not an ordained minister (or justice of the peace, though that would be an interesting sideline), he told Ross that “in Massachusetts, in the middle of America somewhere, you get a friend along, and I read out the words, and Sunny and Patrick will then be married.” THR confirms that the commonwealth of Massachusetts allows family friends or relatives to perform a ceremony for the low, low fee of $25.

The 72-year-old Stewart will marry jazz singer Sunny Ozell, who is 35, and we’re just gonna leave that part of the story alone.
