Why Actor John C. McGinley Is a 'Gravy Guy'

He admits his love for smooth, thick, meaty sauce on Conan.

Late last week on Conan, when host Conan O'Brien asked actor John C. McGinley (Scrubs, The Office) if he was looking forward to the holidays, McGinley didn't miss a beat, "I'm a gravy guy." O'Brien, perplexed, tries to make sense of the situation, "Ok, that just sounds weird the way you say it... Stop saying it that way... if we were on a subway or a bus, I would move way down."

McGinley then tries to explain his love for gravy to Conan sidekick Andy Richter. Eventually, McGinley reveals that he likes his own gravy boat at the table. Watch the clip to see if McGinley would wear a trough of gravy around his neck during dinner.
