"When I first started filming the show, people would come up and say, 'Hi.' And I automatically assumed that maybe we went to high school together.I'm getting a bit more used to it. I'm putting two and two together."
After appearing in a high school production of Arthur Miller's All My Sons, Dane decided to pursue a career in acting. He relocated to Los Angeles, where he played small roles in the television series Saved by the Bell, The Wonder Years, Roseanne, and Married With Children, among others. But in 2000, he was signed for a recurring role in Gideon's Crossing, and followed this with a two-season run in Charmed. His made-for-television movie credits included two biopics, Serving in Silence (about Margarethe Cammermeyer's experiences in the military), and Helter Skelter, in which he portrayed a member of the Charles Manson clan.

In 2005, Eric Dane guested as Dr. Mark Sloan (nicknamed "McSteamy" by Meredith Grey) in "Yesterday," the eighteenth episode of the second season of the ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy.

On 7 December, Oprah appears on stage to support Obama. She makes her first political speech in Des Monies, Iowa for her friend.
She realizes that she can't enforse a politician like she does in book club, "I am not here to tell you what to think," she says.
"I am not here to tell you what to think. I am here to ask you to think," she said. "I want you to think seriously about a man who knows who we are and he knows who we can be. I'm not here for partisan beliefs. Over the years, I've voted for as many Republicans as I have Democrats. So this is not about partisanship to me. This is very, very personal."
So why is Oprah speaking on stage? "You love America. I can see you do," she says.
What's next for Oprah and Obama? They will speak again at U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids, South Carolina and New Hampshire.
No doubt Oprah is one of the most influential women in US today. Do you think she will give Obama the leads in the polls? We believe that Oprah is doing so because she admires Obama and buy his ideas. Still, some people find it doubtful as she only want the first black candidate to be elected.
Nonetheless, both Obama and Oprah are living proof of American dreams. With little luck and hard work, anyone can be successful in the states.
What do you think? Who would you vote? Let's watch Oprah's speech :

"makes the stomach smaller and allows food to bypass part of the small intestine. You will feel full more quickly than when your stomach was its original size, which reduces the amount of food you eat and thus the calories consumed. Bypassing part of the intestine also results in fewer calories being absorbed. This leads to weight loss."
Life after Gastric Bypass
Think about it, if you become suddenly skinny, you will be very happy right? Apparently, it's not. According to those who went throught the bypass and Wikipedia, many who undergone gastric bypass surgery suffer from depression after the surgery. As patients need to follow strict diet in following months, it can cause negative impact to the energy level and emotional state. In addition, many patients become alcoholics.
Lori is one of the guest in Oprah's Suddenly Skinny show. She weighed 267 pounds and lost 125 pounds after gastric bypass surgery. As she has to follow a strict diet, she started to seek comfort via drinking between 10 to 12 drinks a day. Still, Lori refused to believe that she is an alcoholic.
Other victims that speak include singer Carnie Wilson (from Wilson Philips) & Linda. They decided to speak up to alert general public that surgery is not the anwer to weight loss. Dr Robin, an expert in Suddenly Skinny, gives following tips to those who suffer from addiction like alcoholism:
"You need support in your life and you need to be with other people who are going through what you're going through. Don't alienate yourself. The worst thing we can do is be alone in our sorrow."

Cited from oprah.com, the book is...
"a story about forgiveness, it's about redemption, and ultimately love between a mother and her son."
