Eric Dane on leaving 'Grey's Anatomy,' starring on TNT's 'The Last Ship'

Eric Dane turned in his scrubs almost a year ago on Grey’s Anatomy and now he’s more than ready to hit the seas in his new role on TNT’s Michael Bay-produced The Last Ship.

Grey’s Anatomy is a world — it’s not about any one individual actor and the storylines were sort of…you know, heading in different directions. So it was an opportunity for me to go and I was interested in something different,” he told EW last night during a celebration for TNT’s 25th anniversary. “I loved doing Grey’s Anatomy. I would have done it until the final episode, but this was something I couldn’t pass up.”

Dane starred as Mark Sloan for six seasons on the ABC drama before being killed off in September at the start of the ninth season. Just one month later, it was announced he was set to star in a new TNT show about a ship commander and his crew who are some of the only survivors of a global catastrophe that decimates the world’s population. The series received a ten-episode pick up in May.

“It’s a physical challenge,” Dane says of playing Commander Tom Chandler. “On Grey’s Anatomy, I didn’t have to move too much. I think I ran through the hospital three times. But this is a more physically demanding role.” (He adds, jokingly, “Mark Sloan would never get on a ship.”)

The Last Ship, based off the William Brinkley novel of the same name, is set to start filming in the fall and will premiere in summer 2014.

But the burning question on some Grey’s fans’ minds? Will Tom Chandler log as much on-screen shirtless time as Mark Sloan? “Well, we’re going to have to eventually bathe on this show,” he said with a smile.

'Grey's Anatomy' season finale post-mortem: Shonda Rhimes on Calizona, Owen and Cristina and the fate of [spoiler]

Grey’s Anatomy’s season finale was everything you’d expect from a Grey’s Anatomy season finale, filled with tension, action, heartbreak — and even a possible death!

Note: We said possible because the fate of Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.), who last night was electrocuted and last seen on the floor in a desolate part of the hospital, was left up in the air. So have we said goodbye to yet another member of our beloved team of doctors? “That’s such an interesting question! I love that people are asking that question,” Rhimes told EW last night at an event at the  Academy of Television Arts and Sciences that honored the second season finale of her latest hit drama Scandal. “I’m not going to answer it because I like that it’s a question. I will tell you that you will see Jim Pickens again, but I’m not going to answer the question.” READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' finale scoop: [Spoiler] puts hospital in 'crisis mode'

A storm’s a-brewin’! And we mean that in more ways that one.

After last season’s finale found some of the gang from the former Seattle Grace getting in a fatal plane crash, this season, the danger is coming to them.

“I can say that we have a huge super-storm that’s headed to Seattle and you can take that in however many ways you want to take it,” Chandra Wilson reveals about the season ender. “So because of that, the hospital is in crisis mode — because that’s what we like to do.” READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' sneak peek: Alex is jealous of Jo's new relationship -- VIDEO

Alex Karev’s love life has never been easy: He’s cheated, he’s taken care of girlfriends during psychotic breaks, and he’s been left by his wife. But when Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes promised that this would be the year that Alex meets his “person,” things finally started looking up … until that person started dating another guy.

In a sneak peek from this Thursday’s episode, Alex’s jealousy is finally starting to show when Jo mentions that she’s thinking about moving in with Jason, her “d-bag boyfriend,” as Alex puts it. And when Cristina finally calls Alex out on being in love with Jo, he doesn’t exactly deny it. However, he does shoot down the idea of punching Jason.

Watch the sneak peek below:


Catch a new episode of Grey’s Anatomy Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

‘THE OFFICE’: HAPPY ENDING FOR ANDY/ERIN?

When Erin first came on the scene at the Office, I was convinced they were setting her up to be Mrs. Andy Bernard. But their romance has certainly unfolded differently than I expected, especially in the last few weeks, as we saw Erin break it off with Andy so she could be with Pete.

But will the two find their way back to each other before the end of the season? READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' preview: Jesse Williams on Jackson's new role, chances of a reconciliation with April

Jackson Avery now has a lot more on his plate than he ever anticipated.

Thanks to the Harper Avery Foundation’s involvement in the purchasing of Seattle Grace — something that went down in the last new episode — the surgeon now finds himself sitting at the head of a conference room table and more than his fair share of big responsibilities. Or, as Jackson’s mother Catherine put it in the episode, “Now give your mama a kiss, Jackson; she just bought you a hospital.”

The problem? Seattle Grace is coming out of one of its most trying times — a near closure, a botched sale, and lots of unhappy employees. So how will Jackson handle the pressure? “We get to see Jackson kind of a little bit on roller skates — as anyone would be,” Jesse Williams tells EW. “Any of these characters who are given that responsibility — aside from Webber — it’s a lot to take in. It’s a little messy at first.”

'Grey's Anatomy' sneak peek: Is [spoiler] quitting?! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Thought that things were going to calm down at Seattle Grace now that all that sale business is done? Think again.

In fact, it seems the transition is going tougher than everyone imagined — especially poor Avery and Owen. On one end, Avery was unexpectedly thrusted into this position of power — and we’re not even sure he wants it. Meanwhile, Owen killed himself trying to keep the hospital afloat during tough times, and he’s still being looked at as the bad guy!

The pressure of it all is going to get to at least one of them and result in a big resignation. How do we know? We watched the exclusive clip below from next Thursdays brand new episode of Grey’s Anatomy.

Check it out for yourself and make sure to tune in March 14 to see if [spoiler]‘s “I quit” declaration sticks. READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' actress Chyler Leigh cast in NBC pilot

Former Grey’s Anatomy star Chyler Leigh has been cast in the NBC comedy pilot Holding Patterns, EW has confirmed. The comedy tells the story of “a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash.” So, it’s like an alternate universe version of what happened on Grey’s.

Leigh will play Leah, who — according to The Hollywood Reporter — is an intelligent slacker who lives with her two best friends in a Minneapolis duplex.

The Office‘s Justin Spitzer wrote and will executive produce the pilot.

'Grey's Anatomy' sneak peek: Is Meredith's baby in danger? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Are Meredith’s bad memories coming back to haunt her? Or is there something wrong with baby MerDer?

That’s exactly what you’ll be wondering during Thursday’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, when the pregnant surgeon — who has miscarried in the past — starts feeling uneasy about her pregnancy.

A few months ago, Grey’s consulting producer Dan Bucatinsky, who also stars on Scandal, had warned us that Meredith’s “natural trepidation” would soon take center stage. “I think there’s going to be fear around it — as with any woman who gets pregnant when she didn’t think she could,” he told Spoiler Room. “So I think she’s going to guard this pregnancy and her health. It’s going to be something that’s very fragile.”

Watch an exclusive clip from this week’s Grey’s Anatomy, airing Thursday at 9 p.m. ET, below. READ FULL STORY

'Revenge,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'The Office,' 'NCIS,' 'Glee': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Three important notices for all Spoiler Room readers:

1) Next week, I’ll be in California, so expect this column to be 30 percent less cold and bitter. 2) Don’t forget to send in your questions. (spoilerroom@ew.com) If you do — I don’t know if you know this — but all the puppies everywhere will cry. And 3) Space Jam is awesome — and so are you.

‘REVENGE’: WHO’S ON THE BOAT?
As we know, someone is going down with the Amanda. But who? We’ll definitely find out sooner than you might think.

In fact, Gabriel Mann tells me that the big reveal has already been filmed and “it’s a very touching, very action-packed” script. “It is very moving and very poignant, and let’s just say it kind of re-ups Emily’s game in a lot of different ways,” he says.

And while he couldn’t say a single thing about the victim (naturally), Mann did tease that the next few episodes will be the perfect build up. “From a personal point of view, I tend to think that Jack’s fatal flaw is his pride. He’s been keeping the goings on with the Stowaway close to the vest while Emily has been caught up in the Aiden of it all and I’ve been caught up in the NolCorp-takeover-Padma-Marco of it all. I think all of a sudden, our eyes are starting to turn back to the Stowaway and say, ‘What’s been happening here right under our nose?’ he says. “I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to have Emily and Nolan’s sights set on you with laser intensity. Nobody messes with our Jack.”

Now deep into filming the second half of the season, Mann promises that viewers will soon see all the plot points connecting. “I think the ways in which [creator] Mike Kelley has managed to weave all of these things that seem to be coming from a lot of different angles is really one of his fortes,” he says. “I think for viewers of the show — any questions that they may have had or confusion about what came up in the first half of the season will be answered very deliciously in the second half.”

Guesses? Hopes?

'Grey's Anatomy' preview: Jessica Capshaw teases Arizona's latest challenge

Arizona’s road to recovery following the plane crash that claimed the lives of two Seattle Grace doctors has been slow going, and Jessica Capshaw, who plays the bubbly pediatrician wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I think there’s so many different steps in covering this story accurately, and I think the writers have done such an incredible job of wanting to stay so close to the truth and actual experience of losing a limb,” she says. “In all that research I think they’ve picked up along the way the things that would fit into stories as far as Grey’s goes.”

'Grey's Anatomy' scoop: 'Hung' actor visiting Seattle Grace -- EXCLUSIVE

Grey’s Anatomy doesn’t return until next week, but here’s a bit of casting scoopage to tide you over: Hung actor Eddie Jemison is checking into Seattle Grace later this season.

Not much detail on this part yet. Jemison will play Stan Grossman, a smart-warm-nerdy type in a multi-episode guest star role.

Grey‘s earlier booked Entourage and Boston Legal actress Constance Zimmer for a multi-episode arc this season. In addition to his role on HBO’s Hung, Jemison co-starred in the three Oceans caper films. The ABC hit returns on Jan. 10.

Shonda Rhimes and Kerry Washington on 'Oprah's Next Chapter': Five highlights

Last night on Oprah’s Next Chapter, TV maven Shonda Rhimes and EW Entertainer of the Year Kerry Washington sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a wide-ranging chat that covered everything from Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy to… a–holes. (Before you ask, yes, they semi-bleeped.)

Below were the five most revealing moments from the trio’s chat:

* Oprah learned about Scandal via Twitter. Good work, #Gladiators! Even someone like Oprah, who one would assume is the first to know about pretty much everything, gets TV suggestions via Twitter! “On my Twitter feed, everybody was talking about it, and I was like ‘What is this show?!’” revealed O. “So I started watching because of Twitter.” Meanwhile, Washington admitted that she only watches Scandal because of the cast’s live chats on the social media network. Otherwise, she says, “I don’t really like to watch my work when it’s done. It’s a little bit uncomfortable. I literally watch because I want to be able to chat with the fans.” READ FULL STORY
