‘Lip Sync Battle’ Preview: Clark Gregg Gets ‘Toxic’ in Britney Spears Performance, While Hayley Atwell Is ‘Pretty Fly’ (VIDEO)
This Thursday’s episode of Spike’s Lip Sync Battle will pit two stars of the Marvel TV Universe against one another—Clark Gregg, who plays Phil Coulson on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., will take on Hayley Atwell, who stars as Peggy Carter in Marvel’s Agent Carter, both ABC shows.
Spike put out a little teaser about Gregg’s performance, and it’s a hoot, and a far cry from his fairly stoic TV and movie character. Here, Gregg remakes Britney Spears’ “Toxic” music video, complete with decking himself out as a sexy flight attendant. He truly commits to the performance—or maybe he was just brainwashed by Hydra?
Lip Sync Battle hosts LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen were certainly impressed. And Gregg himself was rightfully proud of himself, as demonstrated in this tongue-in-cheek GIF he tweeted out prior to this week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:
