Eric Dane to Star in New Movie

by at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy cast member Eric Dane has taken a co-starring role alongside Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston and Alan Arkin in Marley & Me.

The feature film - the first for Dane since X-Men United - is an adaptation of John Grogan's bestselling memoir. David Franklin is directing.

Mr. & Mrs. Eric Dane

Mr. and Mrs. Eric Dane (also known as Rebecca Gayheart).

Owen Wilson plays the ambitious reporter who moves with his wife (Aniston) to Miami for a newspaper job. Eric Dane will play the journalist's best friend, who suggests that the reporter adopt a puppy as a substitute for the children his wife wants to have.

Marley, of course, is an adorable Lab puppy but an incorrigible handful.

We're looking forward to Dane's big-screen return in Marley & Me.

Steve Marsi is the Managing Editor of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Google+ or email him here.

If this film sticks to its expected release date (Dec. 2008), I just got my early Christmas present. Happy to see Eric is getting the opportunity to work on a film that comes from a respected book. This a good opportunity for him to show that he is more than just McSteamy.

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."
