McKellen gets vicious.

Gary Janetti is no stranger to sitcom couple chemistry, having been involved with Will & Grace for years and Family Guy since its inception. The writer-producer enlisted legendary UK. actors Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi (both are gay) to portray an octogenarian couple with barbed wit for Vicious, which premiered in the UK. before its summer rollout stateside on PBS this summer (June 29). It's costar Iwan Rheon (vicious himself as Ramsay Snow in Game of Thrones), as the couple's handsome young upstairs neighbor, who had the most difficult task--as the object of the elders' attention. Rheon says, "It was a completely surreal moment for me working with them, but they treated me in such a gentlemanly way."
