Though Walter White will—one way or the other—be gone forever a week from Sunday when the final episode of AMC’s Breaking Bad airs, the actor who plays him won’t disappearing any time soon. Bryan Cranston began his month-long run as Lyndon B. Johnson at the American Repertory Theater production of Robert Schenkkan’s All the Way in Cambridge, Mass. on Thursday night and has also signed on to play the titular character in Jay Roach’s biopic Trumbo, which will examine the life of blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo.
Trumbo is expected to start shooting in 2014 and will be Cranston’s first on-screen project after the Breaking Bad series finale. The 57-year-old actor has become a hot commodity in Hollywood of late thanks to his performance on Breaking Bad, which has earned him three Emmy Awards for Best Actor (he could earn his fourth on Sunday). Since 2011, Cranston has appeared in Argo, Drive, The Lincoln Lawyer, Total Recall and Rock of the Ages.
