Maybe Ian McKellen should be the next Bachelor. The British star would bring some much-needed wit and wisdom to the show.

Sir Ian, 74, will officiate the wedding of his X-Men co-star/good friend Patrick Stewart, 73, and it sounds like Ian is also ready for his own walk down the aisle.

In a cheeky segment at Comic-Con, the Lord of the Rings star said he was happy to be back in California.

"I feel safe here now that you got rid of Prop. 8. I'm looking for a husband," Ian said (via Huffington Post). He then turned to his X-Men co-star Michael Fassbender. "It's great to meet you, Michael."

Ha! Gotta give him points for taste. Fassy reportedly blushed; he should be flattered! Can you imagine being married to Gandalf/Magneto? Any guy would be lucky to have him.
