Eric Dane joins Cher and Christina Aguilera in 'Burlesque'



We're gonna do a trifecta here on people we haven't written about in at least three months and say that Grey's Anatomy's Eric Dane has just signed on to star in Burlesque, a musical drama starring Christina Aguilera and Cher. It's like a B-list bonanza!

Tbd-christinaaguilera111909 The story has Dane playing a businessman trying to buy a burlesque club from Cher and trying to win over a small-town girl whose voice brought her to the big city to work at the venue. So, kind of like the story the Duke from Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge wanted Satine and Christian to create.

Also starring are Stanley Tucci, Cam Gigandet, Alan Cumming and Kristen Bell. The Steve Antin-directed flick should hit theaters this time next year, although we can't see it being here for next Christmas, too.
