Ian McKellen is gearing up to officiate the wedding of "X-Men" costar and friend Patrick Stewart.
In other words, Magneto's marrying Professor X.
On the British talk show "The Jonathan Ross Show," the 73-year-old film, stage and TV actor announced that he'd be performing the marriage ceremony for Stewart, 72, and his fiancee, jazz singer Sunny Ozell, 35.
"I'm going to marry Patrick," "The Hobbit" actor said after the host listed out his and Stewart's various collaborations. "No, no. How else do you put that? I'm going to officiate at his wedding."
When asked how the actor would legally pull off such a feat, McKellen humbly replied: "I don't know. But in Massachusetts, in the middle of America somewhere, you get anybody along, a friend, and I read out the words, and Sunny and Patrick will then be married. I declare you man and wife."
