“The Hobbit” actor Ian McKellan recently announced that he will be officiating at the wedding of his “X-Men” co-star Patrick Stewart. 

McKellan discussed the plan while appearing on the British TV show “The Jonathan Ross Program” over the weekend.

“I'm going to marry Patrick," the actor said at first, then added, "I am going to officiate at his wedding.”


Stewart is engaged to jazz singer Sunny Ozell.

Ross asked McKellan how he has the qualifications to perform the ceremony, and the “Hobbit” star said he wasn’t sure of the exact details.

“I don’t know,” he said. "But in Massachusetts, in the middle of America somewhere, you get a friend along, and I read out the words, and Sunny and Patrick will then be married.”
