This is going to be one handsome wedding. Lord Of The Rings and X-Men star Sir Ian McKellen will be officiating friend and fellow actor Sir Patrick Stewart's upcoming wedding.
McKellen made the announcement on the Jonathan Ross Show, a UK talk show.
While McKellen and Stewart play mutant rivals Magneto and Professor Xavier in the X-men films, the two are actually close friends. According to McKellen's Twitter account the duo will be appearing in a number of plays together this year as well as in the upcoming, X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
McKellen also said it wasn't the first time he's married people. "I’ve done it once before with two guys having a civil partnership. I was crying my eyes out," he said on the UK talk show. The Hollywood Reporter points out that in Massachusetts a friend or family member can officiate weddings for a one-time fee.
And no, McKellen will not be wearing his Gandalf robes for the wedding. Sorry geeks.
