According to court records obtained by FOX Business, the 45-year-old "Dawson's Creek" alum filed a breach of contract lawsuit against

+ + +

+
+
+

the broadcasting giant and the podcasting business in Los Angeles Superior Court on August 26.

+ + +

+
+
+

The filings state that the "Varsity Blues" actor last year developed an interest in producing and hosting a podcast based on his well-known acting career and life.

+ + +

+
+
+

The filings stated that "James) started to pursue a potential for establishing a podcast based on

+ + +

+
+
+

his long playing career, onscreen personas, and life as a husband and father of six" in late 2021.

+ + +

+
+
+

He would host the podcast, conduct interviews, offer comments and behind-the-scenes information on prior work, and convey 

+ + +

+
+
+

the type of distinctive perspective as an artist, seeker, and public person that has come to be the hallmark of his social media presence.
