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.
