The Newsroom’s John Gallagher Jr. Provides Sister With Advice on ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’

Looking a gift horse in the mouth! The Newsroom alum John Gallagher Jr. joins his sister on the Thursday, February 25, episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, as seen in a clip from the episode.

"Reservoir Dogs was [a movie] that I probably saw way before I should have, and so I do know this one," John, 31, says after joining his big sister on stage with host Chris Harrison.

The Broadway veteran, who won a Tony Award for Spring Awakening, tells his sibling that the answer is Django Unchained, but she isn't ready to take his suggestion on faith just yet.
