Bryan Cranston will go from playing America's most popular meth czar to making his Broadway debut as President Lyndon B. Johnson in "All the Way," Newsday's Linda Winer reports. The actor, fresh off the final season of the hit "Breaking Bad," will star in Robert Schenkkan's biographical drama about the 36th president in the year following John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination; other characters include Martin Luther King Jr., J. Edgar Hoover and Hubert Humphrey. No opening date or theater has been announced for the play, a transfer from the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge where it closes a sold-out run this weekend.
