Clark Gregg on Good Morning America

Posted on September 25, 2013

Points for making an entrance in style.

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” star Clark Gregg makes an appearance on “Good Morning America” in New York City.

 

We honestly can’t look at anything here and criticize it, but we still want to strip this man down and re-dress him from the ground up to his best benefit. In other words, this is serviceably fine but it’s pretty standard and it’s helped a great deal by the fact that he’s cute.

Still, it’s a beautiful suit and he was on-the-ball enough to button it as soon as he got out of the car, knowing there were pictures being taken. We just wish he’d do up one more button on the shirt. The frames look great on him.

Anyone catch his show, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” last night? Like pretty much all Whedon joints, the pilot was rough but showed a lot of promise. The main issue with the show is the blandness factor running through most of the cast, with the exception of Clark and Ming-Na Wen. But Whedon has a knack for putting casts together, and some of his best shows started off with a bunch of blandly pretty people who originally looked like they had no personalities. Given time to breathe and stretch – as all Whedon shows should – we think they can iron out any cast or character issues. The storytelling was tight and the basic premise is strong. We think it’d be a lot more fun if it was on at a later hour, but that’s just fanboy talk on our parts.

    That last shot is amazeballs! So cute and soooo sexy. I’m home sick today, think I’ll catch the show On Demand.

      Feel better, Annabelle!

        doing my best, thanks.

      CG’s face for an hour will make you feel better :)

    • Tanya Wade

      get well soon, don’t forget to watch the price is right!

      • Meg0GayGuys6

        That was always the best part of staying home sick! The Price is Right with a side of Ramen noodles :)

    Limp collar placket. No other quibbles. I want his car, now.

    • PlethoraofBooks

      I do too – but in blue. I live in a state where it’s been proven that you get pulled over more in red cars than other cars.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        Duly noted! But red is so saxxy!

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          I actually wish he hadn’t done that. I always mock guys *around his age* (cough cough!) in sporty little convertibles, particularly red ones. It screams “Knee Deep In Midlife Crisis”. I actually would have thought, “Hot guy of a certain age” if he hadn’t tooled up in the car.

          • Bethany Roullett

            But the car is a character on the show too! It’s Lola!

          • NYCGlamourpuss

            Ohhh, I getcha! I didn’t know that, I haven’t watched it. Thanks!

          • ItsDicey

            LOVE Lola! <3

          • Constant Reader

            You know, I used to think that too. My SO (age 50) has a sports car type thing and I’ve noticed that really young guys are the ones who walk up, ask questions, watch it drive by, etc. Bottom line: I think a lot of guys like sports cars, they just can’t afford them until they are further along in their careers. So now when I see older guys driving them, I don’t think “midlife crisis” I think “He’s having a blast.”

            In case you’re wondering: no, he doesn’t let me drive it because of my reputation for having a lead foot; his other car is a Honda Fit. LOL!

          • sweetestsith

            I’m inclined to agree with you. I LOVE cars, especially sexy muscle cars, but I will be well into middle age before I can even think about that. From talking to people, that’s pretty common. There are of course exceptions of all ages, but I guess that’s life. :)

          • Constant Reader

            After 20 years of jumping out of perfectly good aircraft, there are a lot of fun things my SO can’t do that he did when he was younger because of some serious back issues. (Including jumping out of aircraft, which he misses doing.) But he can enjoy the hell out of a muscle car!

            I hope you get your dream car one day and have a blast with it. :)

    • marlie

      The car is HAWT.

    • Linda LaPaz

      You do know it converts into a jet car, right?

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        Now I want that car super hard! Up up and away!

      • fursa_saida

        That last moment in the pilot made me so happy. Anything based on comics needs to leave room for a little camp.

  • leahpapa

    This makes me glad they brought him back from the dead.

  • Jessica O’Connell

    Man, I love a man in glasses. Oh and the clothes look pretty nice too. Nothing special but he’s working it.

  • ChristySchiff

    Man – I could really get behind celebrities accessorizing with cars on the red carpet. Way to do a pop of color!

    • jen_vasm

      The car is a ‘Character’ on the show. Well Played, S.H.I.E.L.D. marketing team!

  • WendyD

    Lola!!

  • d4divine

    Nice…and a proper pant hem!

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    I watched Agents of SHIELD last night and it was mildly entertaining. Not sure if it will be a “must see” show for me, but I think it has potential. My husband and I were a bit confused though because we thought his character died in the Avengers movie. I guess they never actually showed his body, but his death was implied (maybe it was just a tactic used by Nick Fury to rally the team?) I liked that it was on at an earlier time so that I could watch Face Off too (I’m one of the few people that don’t have a DVR).

    • Frank_821

      His character was supposedly killed in the film. When the show was announced, that was a point of discussion. From the way the dialog was set up he may actually have died.

      In the comic book world SHIELD has been known to use artificial replicas of people known as Life Model Decoys (or LMD). It’s possible this Agent Coulson may turn out to be some type of an LMD

      • Maya

        Could that be what it is that he doesn’t know about? The two agents in one of the first scenes referenced him not knowing something, and added that he could never know it.

        • hillmad

          **WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILER**

          Coulson keeps making that same comment about Tahiti: “You should go some time. Tahiti. It’s a magical place.” Is he an LMD?

          “A Life Model Decoy (or LMD for short) is a S.H.I.E.L.D.-designed robot that takes the form of a living person thus making a recreation of that person. The owner can see through, speak through, and control everything the Life Model Decoy does. Nick Fury’s Life Model Decoys are probably the most common in the Marvel Universe.

          It is designed to function as an exact body double for VIPs. Their design is such that they mimic the subject’s outer appearance (i.e., fingerprints, hair, all details of the skin),speech patterns, scent, iris and retina patterns, body language, thought patterns (to fool telepaths), and any other biological indicators. Aside from any invasive procedure or strong EMP, they are indistinguishable from the original.” (from Wikipedia)

          • RedRaven617

            Thanks for that. I noticed he kept saying that, and in my mind I thought it was a foreshadow of something to come. Now if I could just figure out that ending….

          • http://www.GiftedCollector.com/ The Gifted Collector

            So he might really be a Stepford wife?

          • Maya

            Thanks for the explanation!

          • Lucía Gavello

            You know, I thought about that but there seems to be another explanation, something happened to Coulson after he died, or something was done to him. Agent Hill tells Doctor Whatshisface “he can never know” so I’m guessing that there’s more to that story.

        • fursa_saida

          I immediately thought LMD, but for comics fans it’s the most obvious possible explanation. But they might go with it for the people who are being pulled in by the movie? But Whedon will probably want to put a twist on it if they do do it. I THROW UP MY HANDS AND WAIT.

          Backing up to The Avengers: there was at least a door left open for his not having died. Maria Hill said to Fury that Coulson’s Captain America cards (the ones he showed the heroes covered in blood to guilt them some more) had been in his locker, not his pocket, so how could the blood have gotten on them? It could have just meant that Fury went and got them and bloodied them up and Coulson died anyway, or it could have been a hint that the whole motivational tactic was a hoax. I really want to find out.

      • Angela_the_Librarian

        Thanks for the comic book info. That sounds like a plausible explanation. It’s so funny how science fiction and soap operas have similar plot devices (it’s very rare for someone to truly be gone forever in either)

    • angryparsnip

      I DVR it because I was busy but I did watch Face Off. Love that show !
      cheers, parsnip

  • Kent Roby

    Cute face, nerd glasses, receding hair: it doesn’t get much better than that!

  • marlie

    I TiVo’ed it and haven’t watched yet, but I’ve been waiting for Agents of SHIELD since they first announced it.

    And Clark Gregg looks good here. I have o complaints. (Agent Coulson lives!)

    • Shawn EH

      Well, sort of. They’re being very mysterious about that. I thought the pilot was okay, but the plot was pretty standard and hackneyed for a sci-fi show. I know Heroes did it like three times alone.

      • marlie

        I know, I know… I’ve heard some rumors about what the deal is… Anyway, it’s the Marvel universe and Whedon; I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt and reserve judgement until they’re a few episodes in.

  • Bridget Smith

    Haven’t watched the show yet, but I really liked Chloe Bennet (the hacker girl) on Nashville, so I trust that she’ll also be compelling here. Also, Jesus Christ she was born in the 90s, wtf. (Just looked her up on IMDb.)

    As for Clark Gregg, I feel like he doesn’t quite know how to handle being the center of attention. But the car is fantastic.

    • formerlyAnon

      Birthdates have become disconcerting as I’ve realized that very roughly probably a third of persons born in the 90s (counting them 1990-1999) are now fully legal 21-and-over adults.

      • marlie

        Stop it.

        • formerlyAnon

          Heh. Can’t stop. It’s horrifying and it’s relentless.

          All I can offer (you really have to be well over 40 for this to work) : Go look at your old driver’s license or other photos from 10 years ago. Remember what you thought about ‘em at the time.

          Now, look at today through the eyes of ten years hence. At current age +10, what’ll you think about how you feel/look/function right now?

          It’s convoluted, but it makes me feel almost like a juicy, spring lamb for a couple of minutes.

          • marlie

            I’ll have to try that.

            So, I’m on the Alumnae Board at my old high school, and last year I was at an event with the senior class. One of them asked me what year I graduated, and when I told her, she said “that was the year that I was born!”

            I wanted to die. Here I was thinking that I was still a cool “young alum.”

          • formerlyAnon

            You’re just a spring chicken compared to me! (Closer to my 40th than 30th high school reunion, here.) I’m not sure, in fact, that my “make self feel better about the age I actually am” technique will work for you unless you’ve deteriorated to an unusual degree since your 20s.

  • clairellis

    He’s so darn adorable. He does need to dress more intersting but love his heart, you just wanna pinch his cheeks!

  • teensmom99

    I think he’s reading the advice from his favorite gay uncles. .. may not have a PhD but obviously studying up on 101 after the recent failure.

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    mmm, there is a faboulous car, did you notice that?

  • gabbilevy

    I enjoyed the show reasonably well, considering how high the expectations are. I suspect the show will need a few episodes to set up itself as independent of, but related to, the Marvel cinematic universe, whereas ‘Pilot’ really felt like it was an offshoot episode of the Avengers movie. That’s not a bad thing, but there’s definitely room for the show to grow.

    Clark Gregg looks adorable.

  • Maya

    He looks adorable! My husband and I watched this last night. It might be the one thing on TV in years that we can watch together. We just have such different tastes in shows! Occasionally my husband will watch Castle with me, but that’s it.

  • Janet B

    Sweet car.

  • HM3

    The acting on last night’s show was TERRIBLE–I spent much of it wondering why, with such a solid storyline and potential fanbase (superheroes), the acting was akin to DAYTIME SOAP OPERAS. Not sure if I have the patience to sit through another episode…

    ETA: I love Gregg’s look here.

    • GillianHolroyd

      The beginning with Cobie Smulders and Clark Gregg looked very encouraging but Stiff Agent Guy, Spunky Hacker Girl and Techno Twins were are too blandly generic. Nice to see Ming Na though. She classes up the joint.

    • fursa_saida

      I really liked Skye (the hacker) and Ming-Na Wen (and Clark Gregg, of course), but the rest of them were a bit bland to me. I’m thinking/hoping that situation will improve.

  • MilaXX

    So far I like. I do agree about the blandness of the cast. I may have squealed a little at the end when the car flew away.Still I like Clark. Maybe it’s the geek girl in me, but I think he’s kinda hot. I would love to see him in a GQ editorial so I’d really have something to drool over.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      Nope- he’s got a nice smile/jaw thing happening, and nice eyes. GQ might help him out a bit- he’s very old school with the suits; definitely “Daddy coming to the school assembly” style.

  • Jennifer Bober

    I’m totally betting that Coulson’s actually a clone or something. I just caught it this morning. I think it’s got great potential and it was nice to see old friends in the cast.

    As for the look, it’s fine. Somebody just starch his collars for goodness sake.

  • MartyBellerMask

    Didn’t see it, don’t watch any Whedon joints (sorry), but “given time to breathe and stretch” worries me. Shows are rarely given the time any more. Wish him and the show all the best.

    ETA- he looks great.

    • semirose

      Hopefully the Marvel and Whedon attachments will draw enough fangirls/boys to keep it afloat until it finds its footing.

  • majorbedhead

    This guy looks enough like another actor that it’s bugging me. I can’t think of who it is, though. It’s been driving me mental since you posted his picture last week.

    • El Bee

      Could it be Will Arnett? I definitely get that vibe off him.

      • majorbedhead

        No, it’s not him. It’s making me a little crazy that I can’t think of the actor. I can picture him in a pork pie hat and glasses like that, with a crazy smile. I’m going to have to dust off my Google-fu and see if I can figure this out before it drives me totally around the bend.

        • majorbedhead

          HANK AZARIA! FInally.

          • formerlyAnon

            I see it now you say it.

  • berkeleygirl

    I just want to strip him down, period. The man has an amazing chest.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      What? Really? I did not know this!

  • semirose

    He looks amazing! I’ve been a fan of his since West Wing and I’m so excited to be getting regular doses again. Reruns of New Adventures of Old Christine just weren’t cutting it anymore and there’s only so many times I can watch Avengers. I agree that other than Gregg and Ming Na Wen the rest of the cast needs some seasoning time. They better get it!

  • bellafigura1

    Super sexy.

  • http://twitter.com/MandySCG MandyJane

    I loved the show, but I wish it was on later too.

  • Synnamin

    There was a person in here? I’m sorry – I was so busy looking at the car… SHINY

  • Tanya Wade

    Those glasses make me want him. And I haven’t before.

  • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

    I’d like the Corvette, please. Anyone know the year? It’s adorable.

    • gsk241

      1962 according to the WSJ article. It is adorable and my favorite character (after Agent Coulson, of course)!

  • BerlinerNYC

    Sign me up for “strip this man down”; hold the “re-dress him,” please.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    He reminds me of William Shalert who played Patty Duke’s father on her show.

  • conniemd

    I really dislike white shirts unbuttoned without ties with a suit. If you want to go the more informal look, which is fine with me, wear a colored or print shirt or a light-weight cashmere sweater.

  • ItsDicey

    Watched it last night and I agree it shows promise IF Whedon can pull it together, as he has several times before. But I’ll be honest here. All I’m seeing is the car. Wiping off the drool since last night. Damn!

  • http://victoriapavlova.com Victoria Pavlova

    The show was all kinds of blah and cheesy for me, but that’s Whedon, so I’m hoping for the best. Gregg is hot as agent Coulson.

  • enuma

    I hope Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the associated press stumping means we’re going to get some style posts featuring Ming-Na, because she looks FABULOUS.

    Wikipedia says she’s almost 50. I’m not sure if it’s good surgeons, good genes, or dark magics, but the bitch has not aged a day since I last saw her on E.R.

  • fursa_saida

    OH THANK GOD, at least his clothes fit. And Lola came! Adorable.
