"The Lazarus Man" star Robert Urich (still best known for "Spenser: For Hire") is suing Castle Rock TV for nearly $1.5 million for breach of contract, claiming it was terminated when he revealed he had cancer. He says he was to be paid $70,000 per episode for his first season of the series and $73,000 an episode for the next one. Castle Rock was unaware of the suit.
