The breaking Bad actor won a Tony Award for Best Actor in June 2014 for his role in the Broadway stage show, and now HBO have revealed the first trailer for the television version of All The Way.

The biopic charts Johnson’s first year in office in 1963, starting with John F. Kennedy’s assassination and following on with his struggle for the Civil Rights Act. 

“This isn’t running for office, this is running for your life,” Johnson says as the realities of being what he dubs being the “accidental president” set in.
