He was so hot, and left way too soon. Thread started for various pics and stories (someone stated in another thread that Burt Reynolds "discovered" Robert, and that he posed for various beefcake shots before he became famous). Post away!
It is pretty well known that he was married to Heather Menzies. Well, at least to anyone who was a fan of his. Or hers.
The object of my teenage fantasies. S.W.A.T. & Vegas.
A while back someone posted about literally bumping into him in Boston, while he was working on Spencer for Hire. They said he was much bigger in person, and very gracious.
He was robust and hairy--just the way I like 'em.
Robert Urich didn't seem to be full of the same bull that so many other Hollywood stars were. He had some fame from Spenser and Vegas but did so many other series that didn't click. Anyone remember Gavilan?
Yeah he had a lot of failed shows. I remember one called "Almost Home" or something like that, that was pretty good.
There was something very charming about him. I loved him in Lazarus Man, which I think was the series he was doing when he found out he had cancer.
I wonder if any of these old series are available online.
Loved him in "Soap"... as a young gayling, he was a total fantasy figure.
Mutha fukka is into dead bodies
And another DL piss and scat freak.
No wonder straights hate fags.
He was in a film called "Endangered Species" with JoBeth Williams in the 80s. He showed butt and bush.
Wow, can you imagine what being in the middle of that testosterone sandwich would be like, R24?
Heather was also Jessica 6 in the classic tv sci-fi 'Logan's Run'. I believe she and Urich are still married. I ran into them earlier this year. Both looked fantastic. I got the impression that Bob was flirting with me. Not that this means anything. Alot of stars naturally flirt with either sex.
R25 They couldve DP'd me anytime. I loved Battle of the Network Stars
No offense, but he pretty flabby in the shirtless pics yous guys have posted. Not bad looking, but nothing to write home about either. I thought gays had better taste than this.
I give up trying to post pics...nothing is working
R31 is a 95 lb. twink with no taste.

Really, R26? That's amazing, since Urich has been dead since 2002.
Yes, Urich was a Chicago actor who was cast in a production of The Rainmaker with Burt Reynolds (fresh from his Cosmo centerfold fame)and Lois Nettleton at the Arlington Park Theater. Reynolds convinced him to come out to Los Angeles, and got him an agent.
R26, was Heather wheeling around a coffin, or was it just a vase of his ashes?
R26 You might be dead and saw him in the afterlife!You know that Mr Urich died of cancer don't you? Or is that the crystal meth speaking?
R24 i want to be Barbara Mandell but nude and on all fours in a game of "push me, pull me" with those 2 studs!
R11 thanks for the towel pic. I always imagine guys holes to look like their belly buttons. And he presented one nicely there!
Uhrich always seemed to be missing something in the intensity department. He also was miscast as "Spenser for Hire". The roleneeded someone who was more of an outward sophisticate.
He was very Brawny Man-ish.
Maybe because I just saw Les Miz today but he reminds me very much of Hugh Jackman.
Really? He reminds me more of a Jonathan Frakes type.
Oh, that Robert Urich! IMPOSSIBLE! Just plain CRAZY! Absolutely NO--I mean NO--comic TIMING! Timing is EVERYTHING! Particularly in COMEDY. Everything. Without it, an actor's portrayal reads as false. INAUTHENTIC! Not true! Cubic Zirconium! And he was just completely UNPROFFESSIONAL on the set. A true horror. Oh--I will not discuss HIM further. No. Truly, one of the absolute WORST people I have ever worked with. EVER!!!
I hope he DROPS DEAD.
Nathan Fillion (esp. on CASTLE) oddly reminds me of someone doing a parody of Urich as Spenser.
