After taking home five Emmys for his performance as Walter White in “Breaking Bad” and a Tony Award-winning turn as Lyndon B. Johnson in last year’s Broadway production of “All the Way,” Bryan Cranston is gunning for the Oscar next. Cranston is filling the shoes of another historical figure as Dalton Trumbo in “Trumbo,” a biopic about the prominent screenwriter based on a biography by Bruce Alexander Cook.
Trumbo was famously blacklisted as part of the “Hollywood 10.” Amazingly, the screenwriter won two Oscars while blacklisted, once under a pen name and once giving another writer credit for the script. The film uses Trumbo’s career as the focal point for the historical saga of Hollywood’s battle with communism.
This exclusive motion poster shows Cranston as Trumbo and other members of the impressive supporting cast, which includes Louis C.K., Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Elle Fanning, John Goodman and Michael Stuhlbarg.
Check out the poster below. “Trumbo” will be released in theaters on November 6.
