2. Clark Gregg in The Road to Christmas

Release Year: 2006

Directed By: Mark Jean

Starring: Jennifer Grey, Megan Park, Clark Gregg, Barbara Gordon, Jean Michael Paré

Throughout the expansive Marvel Cinematic Universe, Clark Gregg has appeared as a constant player in multiple films and shows, beginning with Iron Man in 2008 and most recently in 2019’s Captain Marvel. Gregg even brought his character, Agent Phil Coulson, to ABC’s successful Marvel spin-off series Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D., which ended its seven-season run in August 2020.

As a key fixture of the MCU, fans will more than likely find his presence calming, especially during the holiday season. If Marvel and TV movies sound like your perfect intersection, this one’s for you.

Clark Gregg stars alongside then-wife Jennifer Grey in 2006’s Lifetime original television movie The Road to Christmas. Grey plays fashion photographer Claire Jameson, who’s en route to Aspen for her own wedding.

But when a snowstorm sidelines her travel plans, she embarks on an adventure she never anticipated, and it brings her to the home of widowed teacher Tom (Gregg) and his young daughter (Megan Park). While waiting for the roads to clear to get back on track for her wedding, the sparks flying between the unlikely twosome could melt all the ice in Aspen.
