Actor John Doman has filed a lawsuit against his agent over a financial dispute.

The Wire star has accused Peter Strain of withholding a portion of his pay cheque from his turn on hit U.S. Tv show The Borgias, and now he is taking action to recoup the funds.

Doman filed legal documents at a court in Los Angeles and is seeking a minimum of $440,000 (£275,000), according to the New York Post.
