On Wednesday HBO announced that Marvel’s Falcon Anthony Mackie would play Martin Luther King Jr. to Bryan Cranston’s Lyndon B. Johnson in its adaptation of the Robert Schenkann play All the Way, which won best play from the Tonys, along with a win for Cranston. But every Johnson needs a Lady Bird, and the woman who will play the Southern aristocrat (née Claudia Alta Taylor) is none other than Oscar winner Melissa Leo. Don’t expect any car blow job, though.
