He's not leaving Grey's Anatomy – but he's keeping the costume for a new movie.

Patrick Dempsey is joining the all-star cast of Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall's latest romantic comedy, Valentine's Day, which also features the filmmaker's original pretty woman, Julia Roberts, as well as Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace, Emma Roberts (Julia's niece) and Hector Elizondo (a Marshall staple), according to the Hollywood Reporter. Variety reports that Dempsey's Grey's costar, Eric Dane, will also appear.

The movie's multiple plots involve five various but connected stories in Los Angeles, where shooting started this week. Dempsey's role is that of an obstetrician dating Garner's character, who is unaware he's married. Ah, love.

If Patrick Dempsey has his way, he'll add bus driver to his résumé.

"I'd love to have a nice bus so I could bring my kids racing with me," the Grey's Anatomy star, 43, told PEOPLE after a qualifying run in his Mazda RX-8 for Friday's Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series in Watkins Glen, N.Y.

For the actor – who qualified for Saturday's Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen at position No. 9, the best in his racing career – balancing his passions with his role as a family man (he has a daughter Talula, 7, and 2-year-old twin sons Darby and Sullivan with makeup-artist wife Jillian) is a delicate balancing act.

"I was one of those young men that thought more is better," he says, "and everybody looked at me and thought that I was a freak because I smelled so strong of cologne."

Even before meeting Jillian, his wife of nine years, Patrick Dempsey "was a serial monogamist," he says.

"I've never found it easy to have one-night stands ... it tears away at your soul," the Grey's Anatomy and Made of Honor star, 42, tells the U.K. edition of Glamour" magazine for June. "By the time you open yourself up, you have to close yourself off."

Dempsey credits his spouse, a hairdresser now consulting for Avon, with turning around his life after years of losing out on roles, partly because his dyslexia made it difficult to learn lines for auditions.
