UPDATE (May 31, 2013): Suddenly, the movie world makes sense again.
Yesterday, we all went into a mini-tizzy over Patrick Stewart's tweet about having his "first ever pizza 'slice,'" but as it turns out, he meant to put a lot more emphasis on the word "slice" than a simple pair of double quote marks would allow.
Take the coolest thing you could ever imagine happening in the history of nerdery and multiply it by a hundred. No, make that a thousand ... Done? Good. Whatever you just came up with there, it's not even half as awesome as this, so brace yourselves.
No, we're not talking about some gnarly new "X-Men: Days of Future Past" plot detail — although that could be an interesting direction for the franchise — this'll be an actual real-life wedding ceremony.
Appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show this weekend, Sir Ian McKellen revealed that he'll be serving as an officiant for Patrick Stewart's upcoming wedding ceremony with thirty-five-year-old songstress Sunny Ozell. Get More »

Franco's quite the spitting image of Sebring, no? [Deadline] Get More »
Director Bryan Singer is taking the title of his latest "X-Men" film, "Days of Future Past," very literally.

And now he's returning to the future past again, as, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Singer is currently in negotiations to bring Hugh Jackman back as Wolverine as well.

Few living actors are capable of summoning the raw power, understated dignity and, yes, incessant baldness, that Patrick Stewart managed to channel during his tenure as Professor Xavier in the original "X-Men" trilogy. So when director Matthew Vaughn took the helm of the much-anticipated prequel "X-Men: First Class" (in theaters June 3), he had quite the psychic scalp to fill.
Enter James McAvoy. Since arriving in Hollywood, this handsome (but not in a way that makes you hate him) thespian has charmed audiences with soulful performances and a headful of healthy follicles. But will he make a convincing Xavier with all that showy hair and...non-Patrick Stewartness? He's not even British! (He's Scottish.)
