Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston Set To Make His Broadway Debut!

Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesNew York

nothing stops this train 9763

Yeah Mr. White!

It appears that Bryan Cranston will be treading (not so lightly) the boards of a Broadway stage soon! Knowing his cooking acting skills, He's probably a pure meth…od actor!

That's right! Soon theater-goers on the Great Walter White Way will be saying his name very soon, as the American Repertory Theater's production of All the Way, which has Bryan playing the lead role of Lyndon Johnson, is expected to get a run in NYC starting this Winter!

We can already guess that when it comes to next year's Tony Awards, Bryan will be the danger for all of his competitors!

Looks like we better call Saul, if Saul happens to be the guy we get on the phone at Ticketmaster!

The Big O Preps Martin Luther King, Jr. Miniseries For HBO!

Sounds good!!

Oprah's production company, Harpo Films, is working with HBO to develop a seven hour miniseries called America: In the King Years, which is based off of Taylor Branch's books about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan is slated to write the script.

Harpo's Kate Forte says:

“People have tried telling this story using Parting the Waters, but nobody had all three books until now and that was incredibly enticing for us. This really is America in the King years, from 1954-68. Dr. King is the most dominant character, but there are so many other players who figure prominently. That includes his relationships with two presidents, JFK and Lyndon Johnson, his relationship with Coretta Scott King and his family, Bobby Kennedy, Stokely Carmichael and SNCC. This will cover the freedom rides, the Birmingham campaign, Selma, and the poor people's march on Washington that he was organizing when he was killed. It will be the seminal Civil Rights era film. We thought Robert’s work on The Pacific was incredible and he can hit the ground running."

Sounds like a massive undertaking, but we think the project is in good hands!

We're looking forward to it!

What do U think?? Are U excited to see a Martin Luther King, Jr. miniseries??
