Euphoria Star Eric Dane on His Shocking Full-Frontal Scene: "I'm Willing to Do Anything"

Just how many penises will you see on-camera in the first few episodes of Euphoria? Quite a lot. Up to 30, if you ask The Hollywood Reporter. But while most of those come courtesy of some intense close-up shots in a high school locker room scene, one of the more controversial full-frontal moments in the pilot features Grey's Anatomy alum Eric Dane. Note: spoilers for the first episode of Euphoria to follow!

His character, Cal, meets up with a 17-year-old trans girl named Jules (Hunter Schafer) at a motel after the pair connected on a hook-up app. Jules appears to have doubts, but before she can leave the hotel room Cal rips her tights open and proceeds to have rough sex with her from behind, committing statutory rape. The scene shows an erect penis and full-frontal nudity, but what audiences see is all prosthetics.

Eric Dane's Role on Euphoria Is a Huge Departure From His McSteamy Days

Spoilers for the first episode of HBO's Euphoria ahead!

It's hard to believe, but it's been almost seven years since actor Eric Dane last played the iconic Dr. Mark Sloan on Grey's Anatomy. He's now back as the ultra-skeevy Cal Jacobs on HBO's Euphoria. That's right: McSteamy just became McCreepy.

In the new series, Dane plays Cal Jacobs, the secretive father of angry jock Nate. Nate doesn't come across as very likable in the pilot episode, harassing new-in-town trans teen Jules and crassly gossiping about the sexual histories of his classmates. But, as it turns out, he's not the worst person in his family. At one point in the episode, Cal meets Jules on a very questionable hookup app, and she tells him she's 22, although she's actually only 17. Their in-person encounter turns into an incredibly graphic, shockingly rough sex scene that's disturbing for its violence as well as for

‘Euphoria’ Premieres To Ok Linear Ratings On HBO, Does Well On Digital & Social

  • Deadline
HBO’s provocative new drama series Euphoria, starring Zendaya, which had gotten a lot of pre-launch publicity over the controversy surrounding its graphic depiction of teen sex and drug use, made its debut last night. The show’s premiere 10 Pm airing on the linear network averaged 577,000 viewers.

That number almost doubled to 1 million viewers premiere night viewership with one linear replay and preliminary viewing on HBO Go/Now. Its lead-in, Big Little Lies, drew1.5 million viewers at 9 Pm and 2 million for the night.

HBO does not release streaming numbers, but Euphoria drew the largest premiere audience for a scripted regular series on HBO Now since Westworld. With its high school setting and teen life-centered stories, Euphoria is expected to be one of HBO’s youngest-skewing series ever, with digital viewing as its main ratings driver.

The series, which has been well received by critics, got a lot of attention on social media.

Eric Dane on Why He Used a Prosthetic Penis for ‘Euphoria’ Full-Frontal Sex Scene

  • The Wrap
Eric Dane on Why He Used a Prosthetic Penis for ‘Euphoria’ Full-Frontal Sex Scene
Eric Dane recently opened up about playing a role entirely new to him on HBO’s “Euphoria” — and filming a full frontal nudity scene.

“Those scenes are very difficult to shoot,” Dane told EW. “It helps to have one voice in your ear. One voice that you can express your feelings to, and somebody that is an advocate for the actors. It just simplifies a lot of things and makes for a safe and comfortable environment while shooting something that is fairly uncomfortable to shoot. And certainly, the stuff that we did in the pilot is no exception. It’s a pretty intense scene.”

Dane plays Cal Jacobs, a married man who, in the pilot episode, commits statutory rapes a 17-year-old trans girl named Jules, played by Hunter Schafer.

HBO's Euphoria Premiere: Grade It

HBO's Euphoria Premiere: Grade It
Euphoria‘s central character, Rue, is a teen who craves the nothingness of oblivion and will ingest just about any substance to chase it. This is no great analysis — the character, played by Zendaya (K.C. Undercover) tells us as much, voiceover-style, throughout the premiere of HBO’s new drama. And as we watch Rue and her friends in the lead-up to a suburban house party, we see the various, often harrowing ways that America’s youth approaches its modern rites of passage.

In a moment, we’ll want to know what you thought of the series’ premiere. But first,

Zendaya Warns Viewers Of ‘Euphoria’s “Graphic”, “Raw” And “Triggering” Content Ahead Of HBO Debut

  • Deadline
There has been buzz around the HBO high school drama Euphoria and its portrayal of drugs and sex. The show’s star Zendaya took to Instagram ahead of its Sunday night premiere to give a warning to audiences about the series to let them know that it’s not going to be your basic G-rated Saved by the Bell teen fare.

“Just a reminder before tonight’s premiere, that Euphoria is for mature audiences,” wrote Zendaya. “It’s raw and honest portrait of addiction, anxiety and the difficulties of navigating life today. There are scenes that are graphic, hard to watch and can be triggering. Please only watch if you feel you can handle it. Do what’s best for you. I will still love you and feel your support. Love, Daya.”

Euphoria, which is based on the Israeli series from Hot, screened last week at the Atx Television Festival.

Euphoria Review: HBO's Answer to 13 Reasons Why is a Resounding Success

Early episodes of new shows are generally good for judging of whether the show has the legs to convincingly keep viewers interested for the entire season and beyond. 

If we go by that logic, then Euphoria is a success -- a big controversial success. 

Taking risks usually reaps rewards, and there's no getting away from the fact that Euphoria is probably one of the riskiest shows HBO has ever produced. 

On a network that has shown its fair share of nudity over the years, Euphoria probably shows more nudity during its series premiere than the network has aired over the last decade. 

The aim of the game for Euphoria is to dissect teen adolescence and what it means in today's society.

TV Review: HBO’s ‘Euphoria’ Starring Zendaya

  • Variety
TV Review: HBO’s ‘Euphoria’ Starring Zendaya
The beginning of “Euphoria” feels like a test.

“I was once happy, content, sloshing around in my own primordial pool…” intones a deadpan voiceover as a fetus pulses in “the cruel cervix” of its mother, before cutting to actual news footage of the 9/11 disaster. The voice, belonging to disaffected teen Rue (Zendaya), reveals that the terrorist attack happened three days before she was born, the implication being that disaster has followed her all her life and that she grew up at a time when everyone around her was steeling themselves for the next. Her narration of how she got to the point we meet her, grieving her father and still addicted to opiates after a near fatal overdose, feels like writer/director Sam Levinson (“Assassination Nation”) took the inspiration of the original Israeli series, multiplied it by a “what if ‘Trainspotting,’ but starring a teen girl?’ prompt and went wild.

HBO's Explicit 'Euphoria' Courts Controversy: How Much Teen Sex and Drugs Is Too Much?
Euphoria, the new teen drama that offers perhaps the most unflinching, not to mention explicit, take on modern adolescence ever to hit U.S. television.

The male genitalia in the pilot is not attached to any of the largely 20-something cast. Instead, it's care of actor Eric Dane, who commits statutory rape with a 17-year-old trans girl (newcomer Hunter Schafer, 20). Though the ...

‘Euphoria’ Ep On “Mindful” Approach Of Portraying Drug Use – Atx

  • Deadline
Atx Television wrapped Day 1 with a screening of HBO’s upcoming drama Euphoria, the risqué teen drama based on the Israeli series. The highly graphic series follows a group of high school students as they navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love, and friendship.

Creator and Ep Sam Levinson, an addict who has been sober for over ten years, had a deep connection to this piece. “The hardest thing about portraying a drug addict is — there are a lot of cautionary tales, there are a lot of after-school specials — but what I really wanted to get to the core of is the pain and the shame about what you’re doing and you’re inability to get clean despite the havoc and destruction you’re wreaking round you.”

Levinson was on hand for a Q&A discussion following the screening, along with stars Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, Barbie Ferreira, and Eric Dane.

‘Euphoria’ Team Talks Working with Intimacy Coordinator, Avoiding Glamorizing Addiction

  • Variety
HBO’s adaptation of Israeli teen drama “Euphoria” explores the lives of high school kids who are grappling with social pressures, burgeoning sexualities and addiction. And in order to accurately but comfortably bring such tough topics to life, the show worked with an intimacy coordinator and was careful about how they shot certain scenes.

“There’s a lot of movement in the show in terms of camera,” creator Sam Levinson said at the Atx Television Festival panel for the new series Thursday. “In terms of the sex scenes, the main thing we tried to do is keep the camera still. … You want to allow for the awkwardness and the discomfort to bleed into it.”

Series star Eric Dane, who plays Cal, one of the teen’s parents who has a complicated and much more intertwined connection with the younger characters than it appears at first glance, also praised intimacy coordinator

‘Euphoria’ Trailer: Zendaya’s High School Life Is Probably Different From Yours

HBO has unveiled the trailer for “Euphoria,” its upcoming series based on the Israeli drama of the same name. Zendaya stars in the new show, which “follows a group of high school students as they navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship” — not the most unique of premises, to be sure, but this preview of what’s to come suggests an aesthetically rich experience.

“At some point you make a choice about who you are and what you want,” Zendaya says. “Suddenly the whole world goes dark and nothing else matters but the person standing in front of you. Every time I feel good, I think it’ll last forever — but it doesn’t.” We also see her in rehab meetings, but the new girl in town isn’t the only one of her peers going through a lot. Finally she muses, “If I could be a different person,
