Gandalf will officiate at the wedding of Professor X! Stop now – this is quite serious. How dare you suspect someone at the studio is concocting this scene to publicize Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen’s return in X-Men: Days of Future Past?
McKellen told the audience of the Jonathan Ross Show this weekend —
“I’m going to marry Patrick,” McKellen said, before clarifying, “I am going to officiate at his wedding.”
Sir Patrick plans to wed jazz singer Sunny Ozell.
McKellen assured everyone he has experience:
“I’ve done it once before, with two guys having a civil partnership [in the U.K.],” McKellen said. “I was crying my eyes out.”
While McKellen didn’t reveal what he’s going to wear for Stewart’s wedding… he does know he’s going to be careful not to steal the show.
“Last time, I went with a sort of gown, white, something I bought in India – it was rather fetching,” the actor told Ross. “You musn’t upstage the bride.”
A video clip of McKellen’s entire appearance is available on this page.
