Actor Clark Gregg (aka Agent Phil Coulson) Guest DJs for @KCRW

Actor Clark Gregg (aka Agent Phil Coulson) is Our Guest DJ

He reveals a song on the secret playlist he was listening to before filming the death of his character in "The Avengers".

As S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson, actor Clark Gregg is the glue that holds the Marvel cinematic universe (i.e. Iron Man, Thor, The Avengers, Agents of SHIELD) together and has become a fan favorite.

For his Guest DJ Project set on public radio station KCRW, he takes us on a sonic trip through his life and even revealed one of the tracks on a secret playlist he uses to prepare for dramatic scenes.

On Radiohead’s “Go To Sleep”:

“I find that when I have powerful or emotional scenes, that really the kind of doorway into that stuff is a playlist. And I have one called “Dropping In" on my phone that I have to get some headphones that really fill my ears and blast some stuff, but there’s a really eclectic mix.

When we were shooting The Avengers and poor Coulson was being killed off, I was such a blubbering mess. Joss Whedon came over and he said, “I got to know what’s on that playlist,” and I said “sorry, it’s completely confidential.”

Clark dropped out of college to follow his love of ska to New York City, where he then became fan of hip hop while hanging with the Beastie Boys on the bar scene. 

His full list of songs are below and you can stream/download the 10-minute show here. Also, KCRW’s resident comic expert Eric J Lawrence shares his fandom here.
