Actor Bryan Cranston‘s portrayal of President Lyndon Johnson was more than a triumph of prosthetics and make up.
Watching “All the Way,” I felt that they had exhumed the former president. Cranston was justly rewarded for his performance by the Screen Actors Guild.
This is what he said in his acceptance speech: “I’m often asked, how would Lyndon Johnson think about Donald Trump? I honestly feel that 36 would put his arm around 45 and earnestly wish him success. And he would also whisper in his ear something he said often, as a form of encouragement, and a cautionary tale: “Just don’t piss in the soup that all of us gotta eat.’”
