Since wrapping his role as as drug kingpin Walter White on the Emmy Award–winning drama Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston is doing anything but laying low. The actor is set to make his Broadway debut this winter in All the Way, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan. In the three-hour play, which kicks off with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Cranston plays Lyndon B. Johnson as the new commander-in-chief works to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
All the Way finishes its run October 12 at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Schenkkan announced the play's arrival to Broadway via Twitter; the show's opening date, theater and actors besides Cranston have not been confirmed yet.
