As Bryan Cranston hinted in a recent interview, HBO is the lucky network to acquire the rights to All the Way, the Tony-winning Broadway play starring Cranston as a newly inaugurated President Lyndon B. Johnson fighting to pass the 1964 Civil Rights Act. THR reports that the adaptation will take the form of an HBO movie, not a miniseries, and that Cranston is onboard to reprise his role, with Steven Spielberg executive producing and playwright Robert Schenkkan adapting it for the screen. It might be a stretch, but Aaron Paul isn't too young to play a passable Hubert Humphrey, right?
