Clark Gregg at The Hollywood Reporter’s Emmy Party

Posted on September 20, 2013

Classic example of a man who has no idea how to leverage his own assets, so to speak.

Clark Gregg attends The Hollywood Reporter’s Emmy Party in West Hollywood, California

Jesus Christ, absolutely no item on his body fits him correctly except maybe the sneakers – and even then, they look a little snug. Is this some weird body dysmorphia where he thinks he’s a foot taller and wider than he actually is? But then how does that explain the fact that the jacket actually looks a little small on him? How can one person have so many horrifically wrong ideas about how clothes are supposed to fit? We’re not expecting to see him in skinny jeans and tight polo shirts or anything, but come on. Someone force this man to see a stylist, ASAP.

    He does not look like he wants to be there. At all.

    • Anplica Fiore

      Certainly doesn’t pose/smile like he wants to be there…

    • MartyBellerMask

      Neither does she. They don’t look happy to be there together.

  • Specially since he’s astonishingly good looking. Agent Coulson drag fits him like a charm

    • acevedob

      Yes he is very good looking. I’m very disappointed.

    • fursa_saida

      I have a friend who just refers to him as “professionally handsome,” which, when he’s onscreen, makes perfect sense. This is going to turn her world upside down.

    • BerlinerNYC

      Seriously. I’ve got a solution to that ill-fitting clothes problem; he’s welcome to leave them on the floor next to my bed.

  • I’m getting “the cool Youth Group leader” vibe from this outfit.

    And no, the “cool Youth Group leader” was never actually cool.

  • Awe. Poor Jennifer Grey. Has she become so lowly listed that she doesn’t even warrant a mention? We are just going to let that horrible house dress slide right by? Did they stop in on the way home from dinner with the grandparents?

    • marlie

      YES. My first thought was suburban couple in their “date night” attire on a night out without the kids.

      ETA: She only let him get away with wearing that ratty t-shirt because he put a jacket on over it, and that dresses *everything* up.

    • Amanda Welliver

      I am still unable to recognize Jennifer Grey.

      • sagecreek

        Yep. Worst nose job in the history of the world. Killed her career.

        • ecallaw1977

          Best example ever of how “interesting” can be better than “pretty.” Technically I think her new nose is more attractive, but my eyes would glide right over her in a crowd. Somehow her previous nose almost seemed to frame her eyes and make them seem incredibly intense and expressive.

        • AnaRoW

          The nose job was fine. It’s just that no one realized how distinctive it made her look. She’s either looking more like her old self or I’ve just finally gotten used to the new face.

          • sagecreek

            As ecallaw said below, interesting trumps bland. She used to look like JG, now she looks like any other moderately attractive actress.

      • Bless her heart, she wasn’t the first woman to get a nose job so drastic it changed her entire face, but she was the first to have it seemingly end her career.

    • Clark Gregg is married to Jennifer Grey? WTF? Why did I not know this? They fucking put Baby in the corner.

      • alyce1213

        Not a bad corner to be in.

  • hughman

    I have unnatural love for him since “New Adventures of Old Christine”.

    • I love that awful show.

      • hughman

        OMG, I think it’s genius. One of the best ensembles. Every single one of them is hilarious.

      • MilaXX

        That’s exactly how I describe it.

    • Denise Alden

      I love that show, and the first thing I thought when I saw these photos was “sad dad.”

    • Anne

      I’ve loved him since The West Wing! Maybe even Sports Night.

      • Sports Night! I loved that show so much.

      • fursa_saida

        It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize that Agents Casper and Coulson were the same guy. When I did, it was like the heavens opened.

      • BerlinerNYC

        Yes! The moment I fell in love with him was when he was the Mysterious Stranger in the bar in the finale. Small part, but so damn memorable. I’m glad he’s getting accolades now. You know he wrote What Lies Beneath? Hot and multi-talented.

      • calbear97

        Wait he was on Sports Night??

        • Anne

          For about thirty seconds. He was the guy in the last couple of episodes (maybe even just “Quo Vadimus,” I don’t remember) who wanted to buy the network. But he was great.

    • Sarah

      Love this show to death, wish it was still on. The Thanksgiving episode is comedy perfection (“Run Ritchie, run!”). Also the one where New Christine’s boyfriend has rage issues and slams a wine bottle into her wall. So much funny, so few seasons.

  • marlie

    Agent Coulson looks like he’s melting into a puddle of denim, but maybe it’s an elaborate disguise?

  • Matthew Davie

    I’ve seen him in tons of movies, but never really noticed how hot he is. They always style him so dorky/nerdy.

  • Bradio311

    Send Jennifer Grey with him to see a stylist the poor thing!

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    He always looks like the love child of Will Arnett and Peter Saaaaarsgaaaaaaaaard. The very poorly dressed love child of Will Arnett and Peter Saaaaarsgaaaaaaaaard.

    • charlotte

      …and the guy from 7th Heaven, Stephen Collins.

  • Katesymae

    Despite the bad clothes, you’ve got to admit they look like a fun couple to hang out with.

    • shirab

      Are they actually a couple, not just red carpet colleagues?

      • I googled – married since 2001.

        • shirab

          Really? Fascinating. I had no idea! Do they have kids? (I guess I can google that on my own this time.)

    • Imasewsure

      No they don’t. They look like the opposite of a fun couple… unless it’s a styling party and we get to “fix” them!

      • Katesymae

        I guess it depends on your idea of a good time. I’d split a bottle of wine with ’em any day of the week.

  • veriance

    saddest sausage Friday offering EVER. Jennifer Grey looks pretty good, I like the gypsy/green thing she has going on.

  • MaggieMae

    Oh dear.

  • formerlyAnon

    Ha. Maybe Jennifer won’t let him, hoping the general public will overlook his good looks when he’s not on screen.

  • MilaXX

    The both look like Mr. & Mrs. Suburbia. Did they not get the memo that this was an affair with a step and repeat?

  • RL McGruder

    He seems as if he just doesn’t believe that he’s a good-looking man. At least he’s nicely groomed from the neck up.

  • majorbedhead

    “Hi. Is this where the parent/teacher conference is being held?”

  • Jacquelyn

    He’s gotta get himself some gays.

  • tonibaloney

    He looks like a weird little kid forced to dress up that just completely half-assed it. Horrible.

  • mjude


  • teensmom99

    To me he’ll always be the dad and New Christine and so he is dressed like all the middle aged dads I know.

  • Emily Giovanni

    Well, at least he’s not wearing a fedora.

    • MartyBellerMask

      No idea why, but this made me LOL! 🙂

  • Lori

    This outfit is just so sad. It’s sartorial depression. From his facial expression I’d say that he knows it. The whole thing just kills me.

  • kirkyo

    That’s Jennifer Grey?
    Also, she let him out of the house looking like that. It’s embarrassing.

    • Sue_Asponte

      I also had no idea. I thought, hmm, pretty wife, kinda busy dress though.

  • Jennifer L.

    I saw him at the Much Ado premiere in Seattle, and he came out with some of the other cast members afterwards for a Q&A. You could tell that he was still figuring out how to deal with his immense, screaming fan club. Perhaps he just needs some time to adjust to his new fame and stylistic options?

  • YoungSally

    Looks like he could be the real-life understudy for Walter White.

  • Oh, Coulson, laundry day wear at an Emmy’s party? Time to step it up darling, you’re a star.

  • crash1212

    Whole thing is sad, forlorn and schlumpy. And Jennifer doesn’t look much better. Perhaps they both need to up their meds?

  • Ms_Flyover

    You get the impression they were out and about and he had an “Oh, SH**, we’re supposed to be at this event” moment.

  • gabriella


    • boweryboy

      Yes, and I hate her for that.

    • Courtney

      I always forget that until I see them together.

  • Froggae

    He’s just being kind by making sure her outfit isn’t worse than his. And it takes tremendous effort to not out-shine that housecoat and those granny shoes.

  • Shawn EH

    This is a case where the costumer from the TV show should be relied upon: dress more like Agent Coulson, Clark!

  • shirab

    He looks so very wan. (Which is a word that looks weirder and weirder to me as I reread it, but it’s what jumped into my head at the sight of his expression.)

  • decormaven

    Gosh, couple style intervention, STAT. I’m getting sad just looking at these shots. Come on, people, it’s a photo op. You are in a business where photo ops are mandatory. Suit up!

    • nyll18

      It looks like they’re headed to a parent-teacher conference. Sad.

  • prismamars

    Oh dear…

  • boweryboy

    I doesn’t look like he wants to be there. Or maybe fashion and the Hollywood pole dance aren’t his thing.

    But Christ on a cracker he’s a hot, hot man I’ve been crushing on since New Christine who is dressed like my 79 year old father when he goes fishing.

    It’s like he didn’t even try.

  • sk8tfan

    You’re playing with the big boys now, Agent Coulson. Go forth and get help to look the part.

  • He has made the leap from sit-com actor to star, he needs a stylist. For both of them.

  • Tapetum

    He looks like he pulled the clothing off the top of the laundry pile. Somebody else’s laundry pile.

  • Elizabeth Szubert

    Or, if he does have one, I think it’s the same as RDJ’s.

  • Trickytrisha

    He looks sheepish. Guess he was on a beer run when Jennifer pulled up in her little VW Beetle and waved him into the car to “get him to the Greek on time!” I dunno, it’s a good a scenario as any, considering he’s dressed for any number of casual occasion, just not for anything that requires a photograph to be taken.

  • madscntst

    The look on his face seems to say, “I know, I’m so sorry, I’ll try harder next time.”

  • Heather

    Didn’t he f*** Miranda on an early-season episode of SATC? I can’t place him anywhere else.

  • jmorino08

    Is he married to Baby? Did we know this?

  • Qitkat

    Who is this man? He looks familiar.
    Anyway, he went shopping in #1 or #3 son’s closet. #2 is much more of a fashion horse.

  • Big Bear

    Someone ignored the ‘Cold wash only’ instructions.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Oh, good lord. Pull yourself together, man.

  • RedRaven617

    Jennifer doesn’t look a whole lot better. Talk about frumpy housewife! Get it together people. You’ve been resurrected from the dead Clark, you can do better.

  • RuthGo

    I suspect that he’s been so accustomed to being “that guy”, just a character actor, that he’s probably never given much thought to how he should dress for a red carpet. He’s another one who, in my mind, should just aim for “fine”. Don’t try to be a fashion dandy, don’t wear this horrible outfit, just get a decent suit, a good tie and good shoes and call it a day.

  • R.A.

    I’ve had a crush on him ever since “The New Adventures of Old Christine.” He’s a great actor and seems like a nice guy. And I love that he’s married to Baby from Dirty Dancing 🙂 cuteness!
