Captain Tom Chandler turns 50! Eric Dane celebrates milestone with 'a few birthday cakes' in LA
The 'Euphoria' star had a few different flavors of cake from the celebrity eatery Joan’s on Third
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Eric Dane, who famously played Dr Mark Sloan in Grey's Anatomy, was spotted on his birthday eve in Los Angeles. The 'Euphoria' actor was making his way back to his ride from 'Joan's on Third' after he had a few different flavors of cake from the celebrity eatery in Los Angeles on Wednesday, November 9 as he celebrates his 50th birthday in LA.
The actor was wearing a twill jacket donned over a white T-shirt paired with grey solid full-length track pants and brown Nike Air-Trainer shoes. The popular 'Grey's Anatomy' star is now at the pinnacle of stardom as he essays Cal Jacobs, father of Nate Jacobs, in the award-winning series 'Euphoria.'
Cal Jacobs' struggle to embrace his sexual orientation is one of the most compelling arcs of 'Euphoria'. In the series, he gets into a fight with several men at a local LGBTQ+ dive bar after driving there drunk. Later, Cal drives back home to confess his double life to his wife and two sons. The meltdown ends with Cal pulling his penis out and urinating all over the front room. The scene ended with Dane's prosthetic penis hanging out from his pants.
The actor talked about the contraption to ET earlier this year. "You have got to really be careful with that thing and make sure you clamp it down before you tuck it away," he said, adding the cast were "super supportive” throughout the scene.
“From the start, whipping out his penis and peeing all over the vestibule of the house, the symbolism there is pretty strong. And then being confronted by his wife and telling her how lonely he is. That’s a funny way of conveying those feelings to somebody,” Dane said.
Dane has struggled with severe depression and drug addiction, and being in a show that deals with similar traumas has been an emotional challenge for him. “It’s a very serious thing,” Dane told TODAY in 2017. “I felt very conflicted because I couldn’t figure out what I was depressed about, but it’s very real. And that was the scary thing when you wake up and you’re like, ‘I don’t want to get out of bed.’”
The actor has reconciled with his ex-wife Rebecca Gayheart as they were seen vacationing together in Europe in August. They have two daughters, Billie Beatrice Dane, 12, and Georgia Dane, 10.
