HBO Films say production has started on All the Way starring Bryan Cranston reprising his Tony Award-winning role as President Lyndon B. Johnson. Jay Roach (Game Change) is directing with Robert Schenkkan adapting his critically acclaimed award-winning play.
The cast also includes Anthony Mackie as Martin Luther King, Melissa Leo as Lady Bird Johnson, Bradley Whitford as Hubert Humphrey, and Stephen Root as J. Edgar Hoover. Marque Richardson will play Bob Moses, Aisha Hinds is Fanny Lou Hamer, Todd Weeks plays Walter Jenkins, Mo McRae is Stokely Carmichael, Spencer Garrett is Walter Reuther, and Frank Langella is Sen. Richard Russell.
Schenkkan, Roach, Cranston, Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank, and Justin Falvey are executive producing.
All the Way is a riveting behind-the-scenes look at President Lyndon B. Johnson’s tumultuous first year in office as he takes the oath in the wake of President Kennedy’s assassination, navigates the escalation of the Vietnam War and balances opposing interests to launch his landmark civil rights bill and win election to his first full presidential term.
