Bryan Cranston is not waiting very long at all when it comes to plotting out the future of his life after “Breaking Bad.” Given that the last thing that he wants to do is be forever known as Walter White, it only makes sense that he would already have himself another gig on a big stage … in particular, the Broadway stage.
After a successful run in Cambridge, it is now official that Cranston’s role in the play “All the Way” is going to be heading to the Broadway stage. This is big for Cranston in a number of ways. For one, his presence alone will sell thousands of tickets. He is as big of a star as they come right now, and this gives him an opportunity to get a little bit of respect in the theater community. We already know that his next major TV role will come on “How I Met Your Mother” (a reprisal), and following that, the big screen seems like where he is going to most likely head.
According to statements that producer Jeffrey Richards made to the New York Times, Cranston is the only person that is currently confirmed to be a member of the show’s cast that has been performing in Massachusetts. As for if someone else joins him a little bit later, that still remains to be seen.
Now that the “Breaking Bad” finale is more than a week behind us, the hype does seem to be dying down … for now. You have to believe that anytime there is a series finale down the road, the ending to this show will be compared in some shape or form to all of the others. (By our measures, it’s an example of one of the great ones.)
We’ll let you know soon if there are any further bookings from anyone affiliated with “Breaking Bad.”
