See ITV’s ‘Vicious’ Trailer Starring Sir Ian McKellen

Sir Ian McKellen has played Gandalf and Magneto on the big screen, he’s lit up Britain’s stage, he’s even been knighted– but can he headline a studio sitcom?

Of course, he can. He’s Ian McKellen! The venerable film and stage actor is set to star alongside Derek Jacobi (Gladiator, The King’s Speech) in ITV’s upcoming Vicious, a comedy about an aging couple (McKellen and Jacobi) who have lived together in a London flat for 48 years and now spend their days “reading books, walking their dog and bickering.” The series comes from former Will & Grace and Family Guy writer Gary Janetti, and also stars Misfits‘ Iwan Rheon (who is currently also appearing on HBO’s Game of Thrones). ITV has released a trailer for the comedy. Check it out below!

Vicious premieres Monday, April 29th at 9PM on ITV.
