Craig Rowin, the comedian and Upright Citizens Brigade improviser who recently grabbed a lot of press and attention when he boldly asked everyone via YouTube to give him $1 million and received it (only to reveal it was all a hoax), is now writing the questions for the ABC game show, Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
No joke this time.
I caught up with Rowin over the weekend. "It's crazy," Rowin told me. "It's awesome."
And to answer your other questions: NO, he did not ask for the TV writing gig via YouTube; YES he submitted a writing packet through traditional means; YES, the show's producers know about his million-dollar stunt; and NO, he doesn't plan on pulling a fast one on you this time.
