Bryan Cranston has lined up a project, now that "Breaking Bad" is coming to an end. The actor is headed back to the big screen to play Dalton Trumbo, a Hollywood screenwriter who was blacklisted after refusing to testify for the House Committee on Un-American Activities during an investigation about Communist influences on the movie industry.
Trumbo also served 11 months in prison for being found in contempt of Congress after not answering the questions. Though he was blacklisted, he continued to write movies, though many were credited to fake names, including "Roman Holiday" and "Spartacus."
