Biography

Screen presence - and a strategically placed bath towel - helped boost actor Eric Dane from likable guest actor to a recurring character with plenty of arduous fan support on the popular series "Grey's Anatomy" (ABC, 2004-). But his turn on "Grey's" - as plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Sloan, dubbed "McSteamy" by the appreciative female staff of Seattle Grace Hospital - was not the first time his chiseled good looks had earned him the rapt attention of viewers. In fact, Dane had been building a solid list of credits on television, and to a lesser extent, motion pictures, since his acting debut in 1993.

Bonus Trivia

.

In August 2010, Dane and his wife Rebecca Gayheart won a legal battle against Gawker.com, claiming the web site last year unlawfully posted footage and "maliciously" distributed a raunchy homemade video that featured the couple indulging in a threesome with former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche. Gawker agreed to take down the video and pay an undisclosed sum to the couple in exchange for no further legal action.

On July 20, 2011, it was announced that Dane entered a rehab clinic in Los Angeles to battle an addiction to painkillers. The news came just a few weeks after People magazine confirmed that Dane and his wife Rebecca Gayheart were expecting their second child.
