ALL THE WAY takes audiences behind the doors of the Oval Office and inside the first year of Lyndon B. Johnson's presidency and his fight to pass a landmark civil rights bill.
The play was Cranston's Broadway debut, for which the actor won this year's Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theater World awards for Best Actor in a Play.
Before ALL THE WAY, Cranston received three Emmys, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his performance as 'Walter White' in AMC's Breaking Bad and will likely sweep more honors into his basket at this year's Emmy ceremony.
Cranston's other upcoming film projects include Trumbo and Holland, Michigan. He also recently graced the big screen in Godzilla.
