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).

Totally arrogant brain surgeon dumps absolutely gorgeous and arrogant obstetric specialist, with whom he shares a totally great dialogue. In comes a totallly arrogant cosmetic surgeon whose weakness is the totally beautiful obstetric specialist, who makes him go weak in the knees, but with whom, happily, he shares a fabulous dialogue. Meredith and Derek's byplay used to be so much fun for me to watch until I got a load of Derek and Addison, who had that blend of vulnerable and witchy downpat. Now comes McSteamy, a man who has all the twinkle of McDreamy, and then some AND has the good sense to want a woman and not an adolescent. I'm gonna absolutely love this season. Wish more shows were able to take note of hte audience's reaction to a cameo character and bring them on for a longer stint.

What an awesome addition to the cast. I love his voice and the twinkle in his eye. He plays a great McSteamy and can only add a bit more competition to the list of already hot and handsome men of Seattle Grace. I am looking forward to the fire works between Mark and Addison. He is obviously in love with her, came all the way across country to convince her to come home, but was she just using him to get Derek's attention? It remains to be seen. He sure had our attention in that towel!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

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)
