Who are the 60 Greatest TV Villains of All-Time? TV Guide Magazine's Bruce Fretts and Matt Roush listed their picks for the dubious distinctions in the March 25-April 7 issue of the magazine.
It should come as no surprise that many suds evil-doers made the cut, including Dallas' late, great J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) at No.1; Dynasty devil Alexis Colby (Joan Collins) at No. 7 and Dark Shadows' Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid) at No. 8. READ MORE

Since Guiding Light’s end, former soap star Ron Raines has continued to impress audiences with roles on the stage. He's currently playing ruthless mogul Joseph Pulitzer in the Broadway production of Newsies.
Theater Mania caught up with Raines and asked him whether he sees similarities between his GL role as Alan Spaulding and Pulitzer.
Did you see the similarities between Alan Spaulding and Joseph Pulitzer?
Yes, and I think I've brought a bit of the mean Alan to the role. To me, they're the same guys -- moguls who can manipulate and are controlling. Like Alan, Pulitzer is not stupid and he doesn't suffer fools gladly.
Former Guiding Light star Ron Raines made his Newsies debut on October 10 in New York City. Raines, who plays Joseph Pulitzer in the play, received a Tony Award nomination for his portrayal of Benjamin Stone in the revival of Follies.

Former Guiding Light stars Tom Pelphrey and Ron Raines reunited at the opening night of Pelphrey’s new play, End of the Rainbow. Pelphrey portrays the young fiancé of Judy Garland (Tracie Bennett), Mickey Deans. In a glowing review of the production, The New York Times applauded Bennett’s performance, calling it an “electrifying interpretation of Garland.”
What Ms. Bennett is doing, though, transcends impersonation. Yes, she has the nervy body language and linguistic tics down pat. And when she sings, she matches Garland’s late-career vocal stylings tremolo for tremolo.
The NYT also weighed in on Pelphrey’s role:
Certainly the other characters in “Rainbow” feel that heat. Chief among them are Mickey Deans (a perfectly cast Tom Pelphrey), Garland’s manager and much younger husband-to-be (her fifth), and Anthony (a wonderful Michael Cumpsty), her pianist on this trip. (Jay Russell plays an assortment of other roles.) To these men falls the assignment of keeping Garland sober and making sure she shows up for her performances at the club, the Talk of the Town.
