Thankfully, we won't have to wait long to soak in more of the glory of Bryan Cranston.
The actor, who finishes his run as science-teacher-turned-drug-kingpin Walter White on AMC's critically acclaimed "Breaking Bad," has just scored his first big post-show role: as blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. "Recount" and "Game Change" director Jay Roach will helm the project, which is based on a script by John McNamara.
Trumbo was one of the highest-paid screenwriters in Hollywood when he was sent to prison for refusing to answer questions related to Congress's House On UnAmerican Activities Committee, as part of the infamous witch hunt to out supposed Soviet subversives hiding within the entertainment industry. Still, you couldn't keep a talent like Trumbo down, and during his time as part of the blacklist, continued to write, even scoring two Academy Awards under pseudonyms.
The writer endured and fought against the Hollywood and D. »
