The noted British actor Ian McKellan will marry Sir Patrick Stewart.
You got that, right?
But it may not be quite like you think it is for these two who have starred opposite one another in the X Men franchise.
That's because McKellan will actually do the honors of officiated at Stewart's wedding when Stewart marries his longtime partner Sunny Ozell. While McKellan is gay (and has united at least one same-sex couple in a civil union ceremony) Stewart's partner, Ozell is female.
Stewart and McKellan are longtime friends and Stewart apparently wants McKellan to perform the wedding ceremony. McKellan says he's delighted to do so.
