"Trumbo" - Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren

Take another look @ "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston as director Jay Roach's "Trumbo", plus documentary footage of the real-life blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter 'Dalton Trumbo':

Co-starring Helen Mirren as gossip columnist 'Hedda Hopper'...

..."Trumbo" is written by John McNamara, based on the 1977 book "Dalton Trumbo" by author Bruce Cook.

The story follows the writer's stand and his professional exile of 11 months in prison for contempt of Congress.

Eventually, Trumbo found his way back into Hollywood, writing several scripts under pseudonyms during his exile including Oscar winners "Roman Holiday" and "The Brave One".

Actor/producer Kirk Douglas was also instrumental in weakening the blacklist when he publicized Trumbo's work on "Spartacus".
