TV Bad Boys: Who's Your All-Time Favorite?

damon salvatore don draper mr bigMarch Madness is over, with Kentucky taking home the 2012 NCAA Tournament crown. (Whew, writing about sports is exhausting!) But if the end of the college basketball season has you in a funk — or even if it doesn’t — we’ve got good news: TVLine is getting ready to launch TV’s All-Time Best Bad Boys Bracket Tourney. But first, we need your help deciding which players should make the cut.

I’ll get things started by nominating The Vampire Diaries‘ Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder), who’s irresistable even when he’s being evil, along with Mad Men‘s Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and Sex and the City‘s Mr. Big (Chris Noth), two gentlemen who won’t ever be poster boys for emotional availability, and yet make up for it in terms of confidence, aesthetics, and general suaveness.

And with that, I turn it over to you. Who are your favorite TV bad boys — from shows past and present? Feel free to nominate dangerous heroes and virile villains, as well as guys so awful you can’t help but cheer ‘em on. Start the nominating process in the comments; we’ll read every last one, then curate a tournament field that’s bad to the bone!

And to keep abreast of when the bracket launches and how it plays out, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!

    • Absolutely. No contest here.

      Comment by Josh – April 6, 2012 09:32 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Absolutely! JR was the best baddie ever.

      Comment by Joan – April 6, 2012 09:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That’s good! My vote is for Dexter (Dexter) & Boyd Crowder (Justified). We’re talking bad boy and not villan, right?

      Comment by Kim R – April 6, 2012 10:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Hell yeah, Boyd Crowder! He’s got a rocket-launcher and he’s not afraid to use it.

        • Boyd is the BEST bad guy on TV!!!

        • LOVE me some Boyd!

          Comment by ashley – April 9, 2012 05:55 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I was going to suggest Boyd Crowder as well. I love him.

    • This is no contest.

      Comment by danoregon – April 6, 2012 10:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I second JR Ewing!! And I add . . .

      Eric Northman (True Blood)
      Cesare Borgia (The Borgias)
      Juan Borgia (The Borgias)
      James “Jimmy” Darmody (Boardwalk Empire)
      Nucky Thomson (Boardwalk Empire)
      Lip (Shameless)
      Steve/Jimmy (Shameless)
      Mr. Reese (Person of Interest)

      . . . can I nominate all the guys from Spartacus??

      Comment by mlsteele23 – April 6, 2012 11:13 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Totally agree that Eric Northman should be on the list. He and Damon are the two sexiest vamps ever.

        Comment by TheBeach – April 6, 2012 12:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Don’t forget Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He was the original sexy blonde vamp baddie. I love Eric on True Blood, but part of that has to do with the fact that he reminds me of Spike.

          Comment by girlsinthegarage – April 6, 2012 05:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Definitely voting for Spike, and Cesare Borgia also, who is ah mah zing. Can I also nominate Jax from SOA? YES!

            Comment by the girl – April 8, 2012 06:38 PM PDT  
    • You got it, glen. I totally agree. JR Ewing, the best bad boy and my personal fave, always. I don’t need to read any further.

      Comment by april-ann – April 6, 2012 11:26 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • ABSOLUTELY! JR Ewing is the BEST of all time.

      Here are a few other nods:

      Gregory Sumner from Knots Landing (he was the JR of that show!)
      Spike from Buffy
      Eric Northman (but more from the books than the show)
      Logan Echolls from Veronica Mars

      Comment by EveatEden – April 6, 2012 01:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • William Devane was incredible. Goodonya for remembering Sumner. For my money he was the best of the eighties prime time soap bad guys.

        Comment by ultimate troll – April 20, 2012 08:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Definitely Logan Echolls! And Jax from Sons of Anarchy.

        Comment by TheKate022 – April 23, 2012 10:20 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Reading the comments I agreed with most, when I got to your an saw Logan Echolls I had to comment! He should def. be on the list didn’t even think about him until your comment!

    • Eric Northman
      Spike from Buffy
      Dylan McKay from Beverly Hills 90210
      Sawyer from Lost
      John McBain from One Life To LIve

      Comment by Casey – April 6, 2012 02:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That would be:
      True Blood’s Sheriff Northman,
      Dollhouse’s Alpha,
      Heroes’s Sylar,
      The Walking Dead’s Shane,
      Lost’s Sawyer and, of course,
      Game of Thrones’s Jamie Lannister

        • Is this “bad boys” or “evil assholes?” If it’s evil assholes, DEFINITELY Joffrey. Even the author thinks he’s an asshole.

        • If we’re including scummy pieces of trash, better add Charlie from Two and a Half Men then (“bad boys” of a feather).

          Comment by Shepherd – April 8, 2012 08:13 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • True. I have to agree with that. House could definitely qualify as a bad boy we love.

      Comment by Helena R – April 6, 2012 11:00 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Pretty much anyone who isn’t a Stark from Game of Thrones could qualify. I nominate Bronn as my favorite bad guy though.

          Comment by Watery Tart – April 6, 2012 03:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I thought about this. Sylar is the baddest baddie in Heroes though.. perhaps out of a number of shows (he was seriously deranged).
      Damon is a given.
      Eric Northman.
      The King of Mississippi from True Blood.
      Hmm that’s all I’ve got atm.
      LOVE this idea though!!!!!

      Comment by Danielle H – April 6, 2012 03:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • YES! Noah Bennet from Heroes was a great bad guy because he was mysterious. He would go back and forth and you never really knew if he was fully good or fully bad. He was both.

    • how could I forget Spike?!?

      Comment by emma russo – April 6, 2012 11:00 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yes Spike and Elijah! Though, I’m not sure Elijah could be considered a bad boy. He’s just a badass with no real alliegance to good or evil. When Spike was bad he was all swagger and arrogance and it was SO GOOD! Elijah also, that steely silence before he rips your heart out? Ooh. Too good.

    • If were putting Spike then Angelus DEFO needs to be on the list, there was no one more evil and bad then Angel’s dark side. As well as that another WB show had a classic bad boy with Cole Turner (Charmed)!

    • Spike, YES. Absolutely. But if he’s on there then Angelus needs to be on there too. Spike is hilarious and has swagger even while he’s evil, but Angelus was just…cold. Cold and purely evil and sexy enough to get away with it.

    Damon from The Vampire Diaries.

    • Boyd Crowder is an awesome character!

      Comment by nanerbug – April 6, 2012 09:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I’ll vote for Boyd. He’s an excellent villain/occasionally good guy. He’s at his best when he’s scheming. :) Love Boyd Crowder!

        Comment by Anna – April 6, 2012 11:23 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • If Don Draper qualifies, I’d put Raylan Givens (Justified) on there too. An upstanding character with an itchy trigger finger? Hell yes.

      Also:
      Shane, Walking Dead
      Sark, Alias
      Elijah, Vampire Diaries,
      Jayne, Firefly
      Sylar, Heroes

  • Damon Salvatore (TVD), Logan Echolls (Veronica Mars), and Jordan Catalano (My So-Called Life)… I totally agree on these!

    Also, Tim Riggins (Friday Night Lights) is a bad boy too, right? He skips school every Wednesday and went to jail (even if the reason he went was perhaps as “good guy” a reason could ever be). Tim Riggins, total bad boy!
