Bryan Cranston - Bryan Cranston To Play U.s. President Lyndon B. Johnson

Bryan Cranston is to move on from his role as a drug kingpin in Breaking Bad by playing former U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson on stage.

The actor will portray Johnson in Robert Schenkkan's new play All the Way, after wrapping up his role as meth dealer Walter White in Breaking Bad when the hit U.S. Tv drama goes off the air in September (13).

The play follows Johnson as he enters the White House following the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and depicts him as "alternately bullying and beguiling," according to TheWrap.com.

Cranston's castmates will include This Is Spinal Tap's Michael MCKean, tackling the part of Federal Bureau of Investigation (Fbi) director J. Edgar Hoover, as well as Brandon J. Dirden, who will star as civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.

Performances begin on 13 September (13) at the American Repertory Theater at Harvard University in Massachusetts.
