Bryan Cranston Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is set to make his Broadway debut in a new play.

The Emmy Award-winning actor is due to take on the role of former President Lyndon B. Johnson in a New York play entitled All the Way, written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Robert Schenkkan.

The show's producer Jeffrey Richards tells the New York Daily News, "It's an exciting new American play that deals with LBJ's quest for legitimacy... It deals with a year in American history that was a tumultuous year and an exciting year. The writer has brought it to life vividly."

Last year, Cranston admitted he was eyeing a stint on the New York stage, saying, "I haven't done Broadway yet. I hope to within the next couple of years. I've had opportunities but either the material wasn't quite right or the timing wasn't quite right."
