September 19, 2013 09:34:38 GMT


Emmy Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston is set to appear as blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo in a new feature film to be directed by "Meet the Parents" director Jay Roach simply entitled "Trumbo". The biopic will recount the Hollywood writer's resistance to answer questions during an interrogation from the House Committee on Un-American Activities which worked to identify Americans with Communist ties.

Cranston's lead role in the said political drama is a long-overdue big-screen break for the talented actor, after smaller roles in such films as "Contagion", "Total Recall" and "Argo". With his versatility, from playing Hal on FOX's sitcom "Malcolm in the Middle" to his most recent critically-acclaimed portrayal of Walter White on crime drama series "Breaking Bad", 57-year-old Cranston is expected to come through with another stellar performance.
