Professor Xavier is getting married... and Magneto is officiating!

It's the wedding of the year that every geek wishes they could go to.

Sir Ian McKellen was on the Jonathan Ross Show the other day when he announced, "I'm going to marry Patrick." He was, of course, referring to Sir Patrick Stewart, well-respected Shakespearean actor, leader of a band of mutants, Captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and big fan of Beavis and Butthead. It's also worth noting that they aren't marrying each other, although that would be pretty cool. No, Sir Ian was quick to specify, "I am going to officiate at his wedding."

Stewart will be marrying the frankly stunning jazz singer Sunny Ozell in Massachussettes, a state in which a friend is allowed to perform a marriage ceremony -- for a nominal fee, naturally. This isn't a first for Sir Ian, who told Ross, "I’ve done it once before with two guys having a civil partnership. I was crying my eyes out."

What's Sir Ian planning to wear for the ceremony? "A white gown which I bought in India. You mustn’t upstage the bride."

Quite.
