Oh My Stars and Garters

Ian McKellen Is Set To Officiate Patrick Stewart’s Wedding, Promises No Mutant Attacks, Lots of Fireworks


In what may be one of the greatest moments in geek history, it was announced Sir Ian McKellen would marry longtime friend and colleague Sir Patrick Stewart. The only way this story could have been better would be if they were marrying each other. 

This story just makes me go, “Aww, buddies!”

McKellen appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show over the weekend and dropped the bomb. He would be officiating the marriage of Stewart to his fiancée, Sunny Ozell. “I’m going to marry Patrick,” he blurted out while on the topic of X-Men: Days of Future Past, “How else do you put that? I’m going to officiate at his wedding.”

No word on where or when the ceremony will take place but this isn’t the first time McKellen has officiated a ceremony. He mentioned the most recent was for two men in the U.K, that he wore a white gown, and cried his eyes out. I’m just going to assume he was wearing his Gandalf costume.

Edit: Here’s the video from the show:

    I want these two to make a sitcom about themselves. It would just be these two, doing every day things, in extraordinarily awesome ways.

    I would watch a show of these two in a grocery store for 30 minutes. Hands down.

    Awwww… that’s all I’ve got to say. Awww…

    Well, that and the second thought is the complete and utter irony of a gay man having the civil authority to officiate over a wedding… while not being able to get truly married himself.

    Unless Britain changed that law. I knew they had civil unions but their legality wasn’t on par with straight marriage.

    Ian McKellen on The Jonathan Ross Show was great. He was all hitting on Matt Smith and the I’m going to Marry Patrick Steward was a great line. That man is adorable. That new sitcom of his looks great.

    I believe there’s a bill in front of Parliament at the moment – it’s in third reading or something. From what I can tell from the little chart at the bottom of this it has a long way to go:

    First I was like “but they can’t have kids” but then I was like “they wouldn’t take no for an answer from biology”. No adoption, just make love so hard they both get pregnant.
