Jonah Hill added an unexpected role to his resume earlier this month: wedding officiant. The 22 Jump Street star was "funny, charming and very sentimental" presiding over the nuptials of Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and model Behati Prinsloo, but he's not the only A-lister to play officiant. Apparently, in Hollywood, enlisting a famous friend to oversee the ceremony seems to be rather common. Check out these celebs who've married celebs as evidence.

Ian McKellen: Patrick Stewart and Sunny Ozell
The bromance of these X-Men co-stars is well documented, so it wasn't a huge when Stewart asked McKellen to oversee his wedding to jazz singer Ozell in September 2013. McKellen shared a pic of his "Doctor of Divinity" certificate and "Minister" T-shirt on Facebook, while Stewart confirmed the marriage on Twitter — via a picture of the newlyweds in a ball pit.

Emma Stone: Holly Shakoor and Ruben Fleischer
Stone is responsible for introducing Shakoor, her publicist, to Fleischer, her Zombieland director. How fitting that the couple asked the actress to join them as husband and wife by performing their November 2012 nuptials in Ojai, Calif.

Judith Light: America Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams
It was an Ugly Betty reunion when actress Ferrera wed her longtime beau in June 2011. Betty co-stars Judith Light and Vanessa Williams took on major roles in her big day: Light officiated the ceremony, while Williams played host to the wedding, which took place at her estate in Chappaqua, N.Y.

Reverend Run: Nicole Richie and Joel Madden
Run-DMC fans Richie and Madden called upon legendary rapper — and practicing minister — Reverend Run to perform their December 2010 wedding in Los Angeles. The ceremony was held at the estate of the fashionista's dad, Lionel Richie, whose own music icon status may have helped get the spiritual hip-hop star onboard for the festivities.

Mark Consuelos: Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky
Consuelos certainly knew how to bring the drama to daytime television when he starred alongside wife Kelly Ripa on All My Children back in the '90s. But when the actor oversaw the vows of shock jock Stern and model Ostrosky, he made sure his friends' wedding at New York's Le Cirque restaurant in October 2008 was a low-key, fun affair. He even made way for a surprise speech by guest Jimmy Kimmel — in the middle of officiating the ceremony!

Victor Garber: Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck
Garber not only played Garner's dad on the spy drama Alias, he's also a father figure to the actress in real life. He officiated her wedding to Affleck in Turks and Caicos in June 2005, and is also the godfather of the couple's eldest daughter, Violet.
