Re: Ian McKellen to Marry Patrick Stewart!

This is great, you can tell Sir Patrick is quite a guy. Seems to make long life friends with everyone of his co-stars.

So I'm totally in his age range! I had just turned seven when BOBW aired.
I was a ripe old 10. I'm now 33. Wow, I feel old.

I hate to disappoint everyone but Sir Ian McKellen is not marrying Sir Patrick Stewart. However, McKellen is officiating Stewart's wedding to jazz singer Sunny Ozzell, who Stewart has "been romantically linked since 2009" according to the Huffington Post. Read the story here: http://news.moviefone.ca/2013/03/19/...r=Gay%20Voices

Frankly, I find that this is AWESOME.
I did put the link in, you know...

I was seventeen, which is why he rejected all my proposals to be his new Number Two. I still remember his stinging rejection of me. He said "Number Two? More like 'number too old.'"

Hard words from a hard man.

Damn. I already had Sir McStew picked out as their celebrity power couple name, too.

I guess Magneto doesn't have to hurry down to the Baxter Building to pick up his marriage license now. He seemed really determined to get there, though.

I thought Patrick Stewart was gay. Guess I was wrong. Looking at pictures of the happy couple, he is what Esquire Magazine used to call a "lucky bastard".

Why is Magneto even "driving" a vehicle instead of just flying?

Mind you could be worse. When I saw it, I thought dear old Ian was marrying Kristen Stewart...

And?
Apart from the half-your-age-plus-seven rule violation (and the setup for a rather funny gag by Locutus?) And nothing, really. I wish them well.

Just hope the old man's still "fully functional"...

Brain bleach on aisle 5!

As for SirPat and SirIan: I hate to keep harping on this, but does anybody know what has happened to their Vegas version of The Merchant of Venice? I can't find a damn thing about it, no matter how much Google fu I engage in. And since I love Shakespeare works transmuted to modern times, I'm motivated here...

Sir Ian is gay. He was a crusader for gay equality before it became fashionable. Besides, I think Kristen Stewart only cheats on... er... goes with vampires.

^ Yes, I'm aware of his gender preference, made it even more of a double take!

So what? Gay people are allowed to, and in fact regularly marry straight people of the opposite gender all around the world.
