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.

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.

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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
