Walter's White House

Going All the Way With Bryan Cranston

Full_cranston3

Reasons this August is going to be awesome: Breaking Bad returns the 11th.

Reasons this August is going to be terrible: this is the beginning of the end for Walter White.
 
Reasons why you'll be completely over the hurt by September: Bryan Cranston arrives in Cambridge to play LBJ in the historical drama All the Way starting the 13th.
 
And since he's spent the last five years racking up Emmys as the morally ambiguous time bomb/chemistry teacher-turned-meth-kingpin Walter White on AMC's acclaimed Bad, the transition to playing a politician should be pretty smooth
 
Plus, um, he managed to play himself at Comic-Con. So yeah. He can do a politician easy.

We digress. In Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan's play, Cranston examines what happens when the charismatic Texan VP is suddenly thrust into the presidency, where he must confront powerful enemies, a divided homefront, and his own internal conflicts.
 
Basically like Breaking Bad, only he's pushing bills through Congress instead of crystal meth through New Mexico.
