Eric Dane to Board TNT's The Last Ship

by at . Comments

Eric Dane is moving from the hospital to the high seas.

The beloved ex-Grey's Anatomy star, who killed off that ABC series to open Season 9, has secured a new starring role: He will anchor TNT's The Last Ship, an upcoming drama from producer Michael Bay.

Eric Dane is Fine

Based on a William Brinkley novel, The Last Ship will follow the crew of a naval destroyer that survives worldwide catastrophe. We told you it was a Michael Bay production, didn't we?

Dane will portray Captain Tom Chandler, a veteran member of the Navy in charge of the survivors.

The Last Ship will premiere some time in 2013 and also feature Michaela McManus, Charles Parnell, Travis Van Winkle, Christina Elmore and Sam Spruell.

Isn't this what we already have in "Last Resort" with Andre Braugher? Come on. I like Eric Dane and want him back onscreen, but give us something different Michael Bay. It will be like watching the same thing. One of them is going to suffer. Same thing happened with Ringer and The Lying Game. Both were so similar; Ringer got dropped.

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)

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
