The Monday Hotness: Eric Dane

Filed under: The Monday Hotness — Miss Plumcake @ 4:00 pm

I am not one who is easily skeeved but Eric Dane kinda skeeves me out.

It’s been a while since we’ve had just a plain ole run-of-the-mill American Hunk, and since it’s his birthday and I’ve done far too many people who are actually interesting and have non-hotness-related redeeming qualities I figured for his birthday I’d toss him a little hotness love. Except not in any actual fluid-exchanging sense, because, as I mentioned, he skeeves me out and although I’ve never had a latex allergy before; I’ve never had to employ it in the quantities I would require to get near Mr Dane.

I am not especially familiar with  Mr Dane’s body of work, I know he’s on Grey’s Anatomy and that he married the Noxeema girl who killed some kid with her car and then they made a porn, except it wasn’t really a porn but maybe people sitting around in their underwear smoking cigarettes talking about having sex, which sounds anticlimactic and also a lot like what I’m pretty sure my grandfather and his buddies would do if my grandmother and her friends ever left town for the week.

He also has a Pervy Moustache, and it’s entirely possible the PM  is what bothers me the most.  Obviously Mr Dane is doing his best Errol Flynn –who also creeps me the heck out, even though he was born Church of England– so perhaps some residual Flynn-skeeve is rubbing off on Mr Dane, the literal  prospect of which which has now grossed me out so much that I need to close all my browser tabs and hit the Silkwood Spa.

The happiest meal of the day

Well, can't argue with that

aww, bless his heart.
(aww, blesshisheart)

  3. I’m laughing so hard right now – he (Dane) is kind of … I don’t know … skeevy. :-)

  4. eric dane skeeves me out too!

    as for suggestions i say bradley cooper because is hotness is not entirely conventional- in fact some may even consider him unattractive.

    i must say i’m also in agreement with another commenter who suggested mark ruffalo- yummy!

  5. I want to put this in the nicest possible way: if I want run of the mill, I’ll read People magazine. Bring back the real Monday Hotness!

  6. Oh Mrs. Hendricks, you have no idea how much better it makes me feel. This one nearly killed me.

    Comment by Plumcake — November 9, 2009 @ 6:10 pm

  7. Word to Mrs. Hendricks! My favorites are the ones where I start reading the entry going “Really? Hotness?” and at the end I’m saying, “You’re so right! They are incredibly hot! How could I ever have missed it?” Alan Cumming topped that list. :)

  8. Count me among those with Mrs. Hendricks on this question. Monday Hotness only works if you actually consider them hot. I may not always agree, but that’s okay. I can appreciate a good appreciation even while I’m wondering precisely what sort of smoke accomplishes the attraction.

  9. Love you, Plummy, but I demand a real Monday Hotness. Boyfriend is not making my socks go up and down.

  10. Plumcaaaaaaaake! I KNOW he only does really silly shows but could you pleasepleaseplease do a Monday Hotness on Gilles Marini? But excluding his scenes in the SatC movie, because that movie was a blot on my pure, Catholic soul.

  11. I got to second Sean Bean! Mr. Dane? No.

    Comment by mdegraffen — November 10, 2009 @ 10:16 am

  12. Oh and a YES to Gilles Marini!

    Comment by mdegraffen — November 10, 2009 @ 10:16 am

  13. 1. He’s not hot.
    2. Either his jeans are too loose or his underwear are too tight. It’s not hot to see underwear unless underwear is the only clothing item. It’s just tacky.

  14. PS Why no Alan Rickman again?

    Comment by class factotum — November 10, 2009 @ 10:40 am

  15. Yum…..that is all I have to say. lol

  16. BECAUSE THERE’S AN EMBARGO!!! Plus I already did Alan Rickman out of the kindness of my heart, DESPITE the embargo when one of our dear readers lost her thesis.

    Comment by Plumcake — November 10, 2009 @ 12:22 pm

  17. I know there’s an embargo. But I don’t know why there’s an embargo. If you’ve explained the reasons for the embargo and I just wasn’t paying attention, though, I will slink off into the corner and cower. He is getting a little long in the tooth and I was happy to see him Get What He Deserved in Noble Son, so maybe that’s why.

  18. I disagree. I think a little underwear is hot. And for what its worth I think Mr. Dane is hot too. I mean … I prefer Giovanni Ribisi but that doesn’t make Mr. Dane less hot.

  19. Eric Dane is guilty-pleasure, dirty hot – a la Lenny Kravitz.

    Comment by Melissa — November 10, 2009 @ 9:15 pm

  20. I totally agree with Melissa! It’s that last photo that really gets me.

  21. Never seen this guy before. Looks like Brad Pitt and Leodinardo Dicaprio had a love child. Yawn.
