After becoming enamored with performing in high school, Eric Dane became another LA transplant doing the Hollywood hustle. He started small — guest parts on a string of series like “Saved By The Bell” and “Married … With Children” — before being offered slightly meatier roles on the short-lived 2001 medical drama “Gideon’s Crossing” (where he met his longtime girlfriend Lara Flynn Boyle during a crossover episode with “The Practice”) and “Charmed” (2003-04). But it wasn’t until he stepped out of that second season hot shower on “Grey’s Anatomy” that he truly earned his place as a big-time small-screen stud. He lived up to his McSteamy nickname when a sex tape he made with wife Rebecca Gayheart (They married in October 2004.) and a disgraced Miss Teen USA 2002 Kari Ann Peniche was leaked in 2009. Two years later, he went to rehab for an addiction to painkillers following a sports injury. Before he was killed off the ABC drama in 2012, Dane moonlighted in films like “Marley & Me,” “Valentine’s Day” and “Burlesque.” The father of two (daughters Billie and Georgia) can now be seen commanding “The Last Ship” on TNT.
