Eric Dane has joined the cast of ABC’s hit medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy” as a regular.
Dane plays plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Sloan, a.k.a. “McSteamy,” a role he originated in a guest appearance last season. He returned to the series in the final scene of the Thursday episode.
“Grey’s” marks Dane’s second co-starring stint as a hot young doctor on an ABC medical drama. Several years ago, he played Dr. Wyatt Cooper on the network’s “Gideon’s Crossing.”
Dane most recently appeared in the blockbuster “X-Men: The Last Stand.” On television, he also had a recurring role on WB Network’s “Charmed.”
