Patrick Stewart Is Marrying a Woman Half His Age — and Ian McKellen Will Officiate!

Magneto will marry Professor X! Gandalf will marry Captain Picard! No matter how you slice it, it's geek heaven.

X-Men star Patrick Stewart, 72, is engaged to jazz singer Sunny Ozell, 35 (yep another huge age difference), and Patrick's X-Men co-star, Sir Ian McKellen, told the U.K.'s Jonathan Ross Show that he would be part of the wedding.

"I'm going to marry Patrick. … I am going to officiate at his wedding."

This would be even cooler if he were literally going to marry him.

Sir Ian said his job is to just read out the words and Sunny and Patrick will be married. He did this once before with two men having a civil partnership. "I was crying my eyes out." Aww!

Congrats to Patrick and his fiancee. And good luck to Sir Ian, who added that he would dress for the wedding in "a white gown which I bought in India. You mustn’t upstage the bride." Too late!
