With AMC's "Breaking Bad" ending, star Bryan Cranston has much more time on his hands. 

He has decided to go back to his roots in theatrical acting by taking on a project playing Lyndon B. Johnson in a new production by playwright Robert Schenkkan. 

The play will be performed in Massachusetts and he will play the lead. It is called "All the Way."

It is set to open at the American Repertory Theater on September 13. 

"All the Way" will be about Johnson's first year in the Oval Office, dealing with conflict in Vietnam and civl-rights unrest in America.

Schenkkan wrote it as a commission for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. It was produced there in 2012 with different cast members and was directed by Bill Rauch.

Rauch is set to direct the Massachusetts version as well.
