WATCH: Bryan Cranston Is LBJ in the Trailer for “All the Way”
“You’re not running for office, you’re running for your life.”
Heisenberg himself, Bryan Cranston, is on a biopic kick of late, following up his Oscar-nominated performance of Dalton Trumbo in Trumbo with an Emmy-oriented turn as President Lyndon B. Johnson in All the Way. For whatever reason, that’s all of what it’ll be—an Emmy candidate—since the film is an HBO feature. But from the looks of the first trailer, it’ll be talked about a lot more than your average TV movie.
The project is actually an adaptation, as All the Way was originally a 2012 play, for which Cranston won a Tony for his portrayal of LBJ. For this presentation, Cranston has reupped with his Trumbo directorial partner Jay Roach, whom you may know as the director of all three Austin Powers movies, weirdly enough.
You can watch the feature from the comforts of your home just as election season really heats up on May 21, but in the meantime you can go “All the Way with LBJ” in the trailer below.
All the Way airs on HBO on May 21.
