Yeah, I know the accompanying image doesn’t precisely fit. Cut me some slack, it’s the only searchable-image for “X-Men Wedding” that doesn’t seem like a lame tie-in to the corny gay joke every other outlet ran with.
Anyway, in what might be the niftiest piece of tangentially-nerdy news of the year so far, Patrick Stewart is marrying New York jazz musician Sunny Ozell. And, since the wedding is set to be held in Massachusetts, they’ll be taking advantage of the state’s one day marriage-designation law (which allows a friend/relative of a couple to be temporarily empowered to legally perform their wedding) the ceremony will be officiated by Sir Ian McKellan; whom Stewart is set to once again be co-starring with (as Professor X and Magneto, respectively) in the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
So… that’s pretty cool. Congratulations to all involved.
