March 19 (UPI) -- British actor Sir Ian McKellen appeared on "The Jonathan Ross Show" Saturday and revealed he would be officiating Patrick Stewart's wedding to Sunny Ozell.

"Yes, I'm going to marry Patrick. Well, no. How else do you put that? I am going to officiate at his wedding."

Host Jonathan Ross asked how he's legally allowed to do that. "Well I don't know, 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. 'I declare you man and wife.'"

The two actors are longtime friends and costars. McKellen and Stewart played Magneto and Professor Xavier, respectively, in the "X-Men" films. They are scheduled to appear together in both Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" and Harold Pinter's "No Man's Land" on Broadway, set to begin rehearsals later this year.
