“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston will make his Broadway debut this winter, playing Lyndon B. Johnson in a play called “All the Way,” the show’s producers announced this weekend.

The play begins with JFK’s assassination and follows the first year of LBJ’s presidency, including his interactions with Martin Luther King Jr. and J. Edgar Hoover.

The three-hour play by Robert Schenkkan is currently finishing up a run in Cambridge, Mass. (where it earned positive reviews).

It will move to New York at some unspecified time in the next few months with its director and star still attached, according to The New York Times.

Cranston just ended his critically acclaimed and award-winning run in the role of schoolteacher-turned-meth manufacturer in “Breaking Bad.”
