McSteamy is staying put.

Eric Dane, who made his return to Grey's Anatomy in the waning moments of last Thursday's episode, has joined the cast of the hit medical drama as a regular, MSNBC confirms.

Dane plays plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Sloan, a.k.a. "McSteamy," a role he originated in a guest appearance last season, stole the show last week, and is already a fan favorite in spite of his limited exposure.

Grey's Anatomy 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.

Suffice it to say, we're glad he's sticking around Seattle and are eager to find out what happens between Mark and Addison Shepherd (above).

I can FEEL the steam from here…CAN WE SAY HOTTTTIIIEEEE!!* HOTIIEEEE!!!


McSteamy, gosh I wish I didn't have that towel on!!!


I am glad he's here to stay. He really cares for addison and I am wondering if him being at Seattle Grace will get under Derek's skin.(I think Derek still cares for Addison and is going to be ticked once there relationship takes off/if it takes off). But I was wondering, did he fly all the way from New York to be by Addison' side or was he already there in Seattle because Richard had called him and ofter him a job?


i think he was more tan in the yesterday episode


I am so glad they made Eric Dane a regular cast member. He brings so much to the show. I want to see if Derek and him mend their broken friendship.


shew thank goodness .. i've been wantin him to come on since his first apperance!!!!


I can FEEL the steam from here...CAN WE SAY HOTTTTIIIEEEE!!


OMG The towel scene was very hot!!! He should definitely be McSexy not McSteamy...however I'm still a faithful McDreamy lover!! haha...Can't wait to see what McSteamy has in store for us this Thursday!!


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
