Bryan Cranston’s meteoric rise to the top has not stopped since the end of Breaking Bad. The man has won multiple Emmys, a Golden Globe, and he just recently added a Best Lead Actor Tony for portraying Lyndon B. Johnson in the play All The Way to the list. As it turns out, he might be bringing his Tony winning performance as the former US President to TV courtesy of Steven Spielberg.
Deadline announced that the Academy Award winning director would like to do a mini-series based on the Robert Schenkkan-penned play. With that he would like Cranston to reprise his role of LBJ.
The play spans from the time that LBJ takes over office after the assassination of President Kennedy up to his re-election. It is rumored that Spielberg has seen the play a few times and has a relationship with both Cranston and Schenkkan.
There is no word yet to where the mini-series will be aired and when. What is known is that Cranston is an amazing actor and Spielberg does not hold back when it comes to historical dramas. So, from the sound of it , this is a powder keg of awesome that is about to explode.
