In what could be considered the coolest wedding move of all time, it has been announced that Ian McKellen will be officiating at the wedding of his X-Men co-star Patrick Stewart. Ian McKellen made the announcement on the British talk show, The Jonathan Ross Show.
“I’m going to marry Patrick,” he said. “I am going to officiate at his wedding,” he clarified in a cheeky manner.
This is not the first time that McKellen has officiated a wedding. He has also married “…two guys having a civil partnership” in the U.K., which brought the well-known actor to tears.
McKellen is best known for his roles in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy as well as X-Men. Both Stewart and McKellen are set to reprise their roles in the upcoming movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, which will be released in July 2014.
