“Grey’s Anatomy” stars Patrick Dempsey and Eric Dane have both joined the ensemble comedy Valentine’s Day, according to the Hollywood trades.

They are joining a cast that includes Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace, Emma Roberts and Hector Elizondo. Garry Marshall is directing the New Line film for a February 12, 2010 release.

The movie, which began shooting this week, follows five slightly interconnecting stories playing out in Los Angeles during Valentine’s Day.

Dempsey will play a married obstetrician dating Garner’s character on the sly, with her unaware of his status. Dane will play a quarterback struggling over the decision of whether to retire.
