LOS ANGELES, Aug. 13, 2015 - Principal photography has begun on HBO Films' ALL THE WAY, directed by Jay Roach (HBO's "Game Change" and "Recount") and written by Robert Schenkkan (Pulitzer Prize winner for "The Kentucky Cycle"; two-time Emmy(R) nominee and Writers Guild Award winner for HBO's "The Pacific"), who has adapted his Tony Award-winning play of the same name.

Bryan Cranston (three-time Emmy(R) winner for "Breaking Bad") will reprise his Tony Award-winning role as President Lyndon B. Johnson. Joining him are Anthony Mackie (portraying Martin Luther King), Melissa Leo (Lady Bird Johnson), Bradley Whitford (Hubert Humphrey), Stephen Root (J. Edgar Hoover), Marque Richardson (Bob Moses), Aisha Hinds (Fanny Lou Hamer), Todd Weeks (Walter Jenkins), Mo McRae (Stokely Carmichael), Spencer Garrett (Walter Reuther) and Frank Langella (Sen. Richard Russell).

ALL THE WAY is a riveting behind-the-scenes look at President Lyndon B. Johnson's tumultuous first year in office as he takes the oath in the wake of President Kennedy's assassination, navigates the escalation of the Vietnam War and balances opposing interests to launch his landmark civil rights bill and win election to his first full presidential term.

ALL THE WAY is produced for HBO by Amblin Television, Tale Told Productions and Moonshot Entertainment, with Steven Spielberg, Robert Schenkkan, Jay Roach, Bryan Cranston, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey ("Extant," "The Americans") executive producing and James Degus ("Sneaky Pete") co-executive producing.

In addition to the Tony Award, Schenkkan's play "All the Way" received Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, Drama Desk, National Theater Critics and Edward M. Kennedy awards.

Bryan Cranston's Broadway debut in "All the Way" brought him Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theater World Awards, as well as a Tony. He previously won three consecutive Emmy(R) Awards, a Golden Globe Award and three Screen Actors Guild Awards for his portrayal of Walter White on "Breaking Bad"; he also won an Emmy(R) and a Producers Guild of America Award as a producer on the series. On the big screen, Cranston shared a Screen Actors Guild Award as part of the cast of the Oscar(R)-winning 2012 film "Argo," and starred in the hit "Godzilla." His latest film is Jay Roach's "Trumbo," in which he stars in the title role of Dalton Trumbo, the successful Hollywood screenwriter whose career came to an end when he was blacklisted in the 1940s McCarthy era for being a Communist. "Trumbo" will be released this fall.

Anthony Mackie is a two-time Independent Spirt Award nominee, receiving a Best Supporting Actor nomination for the Oscar(R)-winning film "The Hurt Locker" and a Best Actor nomination for "Brother to Brother." Mackie also shared a SAG nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast for "The Hurt Locker." His other films include "Ant Man," "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the "Captain America" series, "The Fifth Estate," "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," "The Adjustment Bureau," "Notorious" and "8 Mile." His theatrical credits include "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," "Drowning Crow," "McReele," "A Soldier's Play" and "Talk," for which he won an Obie Award.

Melissa Leo's performance in "The Fighter" earned her an Academy Award(R), a Golden Globe Award, a SAG Award and a Broadcast Film Critics Association Award, in addition to numerous regional film critics' awards. Her starring role in "Frozen River" led to Oscar(R) and SAG Award nominations and a Best Female Lead award from the Independent Spirit Awards. Leo's other film credits include "21 Grams," "Oblivion," "Welcome to the Rileys" and "The Cake Eaters." On TV, Leo's guest-starring performance on "Louie" won her an Emmy(R); she also received an Emmy(R) nomination for HBO's "Mildred Pierce." Her other TV credits include "Wayward Pines," HBO's "Treme" and "BoJack Horseman."

Frank Langella is a three-time Tony Award winner, for "Seascape," "Fortune's Fool" and "Frost/Nixon," and received Oscar(R), Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations for the film adaptation of "Frost/Nixon." His film credits also include "Draft Day," "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," "Superman Returns," "Goodnight, and Good Luck," "Dave" and "Diary of a Mad Housewife," which earned him a Best Supporting Actor Award from the National Board of Review in the same year he received the National Board of Review Best Supporting Actor Award for "The Twelve Chairs." Langella's numerous TV credits include "The Americans," "Grace of Monaco," HBO Films' "Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight" and "I, Leonardo: A Journey of the Mind," for which he received an Emmy(R) nomination.

ALL THE WAY marks Jay Roach's fourth directorial outing with HBO. He previously helmed and executive produced the Emmy Award(R)-winning HBO Films presentations "Game Change" and "Recount," both of which earned him Emmys(R) for Outstanding Directing and Outstanding Movie; "Game Change" also brought him a Golden Globe and a Peabody Award. Roach also directed the pilot for the HBO comedy series "The Brink," which debuted earlier this year, and serves as an executive producer on the show.

Roach's feature film directing credits include "Meet the Parents," the "Austin Powers" trilogy, "The Campaign" and the upcoming "Trumbo," which stars Bryan Cranston. His producing credits include, among others, "Little Fockers," the Academy Award(R)-nominated "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," "Meet the Fockers," "Meet the Parents" and the upcoming comedy "Sisters," starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
