If you know anything about Grey’s Anatomy, you know that Seattle Grace Hospital employs some of television’s hottest doctors. Even with the likes of Patrick Dempsey and Katherine Heigl running around, one of the standouts is Eric Dane, who plays plastic surgeon Mark Sloane.

Though he was a strong athlete in high school, Dane always like acting more. He began his career with several guest spots on television shows like The Wonder Years, Charmed, and a recurring role on Charmed.

His big break came in 2005 when he began his stint as Dr. Sloane on Grey’s. Though we weren’t supposed to like his character because of his introduction as a home wrecker, audiences couldn’t help but to fall in love.  He wasn’t even supposed to become a cast regular, but his scantily-clad opening scenes sparked so much positive audience response the writers added him into the plot permanently. As a McSteamy fan from the start, I am very thankful for this.

In real life, Dane has been married for several years to Rebecca Gayheart, and the two are expecting their first child any day now. It isn’t all smiles with these two, though. Not only were they the stars of a leaked sex tape that featured a former Miss Teen USA, but also they have been accused of cocaine use by several of their peers. Interestingly enough, Dane’s fans were more intrigued by these charades than upset. On fan even tweeted “I think this is the first celebrity sex tape that I actually want to see.”

In terms of Dane’s other appearances on camera, his film career remains small. Catch Eric in Valentine’s Day and next in film Burlesque.
