Playing Agent Coulson Is Still Cool For Clark Gregg

144166_2573Clark Gregg first appeared as Agent Phil Coulson in the first Iron Man movie nearly 10 years ago. Since then, he’s played the character in three other movies, three video games, and two TV shows, including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is now in its fifth season. Having spent so much time with the character over the past decade, Gregg told us he hasn’t gotten bored because, in the superhero universe, there are so many different layers to each character.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Friday nights on ABC.

Clark Gregg Marvels at His ‘Shield’ Character’s Growth

133582_7470Clark Gregg’s fan favorite character, Special Agent Phil Coulson, has come a long way from his bit part in 2008’s then-unexpected blockbuster, Iron Man. With ever-expanding roles in Iron Man 2 and Thor, and culminating in an important (some would almost say… terminal) supporting turn in 2012’s The Avengers, it seemed the natural choice to tap Gregg, who has a background in TV work (with recurring roles on The West Wing and Will & Grace), to headline the studio’s first attempt at prime time drama: Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.


Through it all, Gregg has maintained a deep affection for a character who reveals new facets of himself with every script. “I am constantly learning more and more about the guy,” says Gregg, whose involvement in future Marvel films is yet to be determined — though, having his own TV show is probably a fair consolation prize. Speaking on Coulson’s constantly evolving character, Gregg cleverly compares him to a party game, “where the next person who gets a hold of him gets to write another sentence.”

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD airs Tuesday nights on ABC.
