Bryan Cranston will star as blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo in a film that's to be his first after wrapping "Breaking Bad."

A publicist for Cranston confirmed the casting Thursday. The film, "Trumbo," will be directed by "Meet the Parents" filmmaker Jay Roach from a script by John McNamara.

As a member of the Communist Party, Trumbo was among the Hollywood 10: screenwriters and directors blacklisted in 1947 after refusing to testify before the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Trumbo won two Oscars, one for the script to "The Brave One," written under the name Robert Rich, and another awarded posthumously for "Roman Holiday."

Cranston also stars in the upcoming "Godzilla," due out in May.

The 57-year-old actor is nominated for an Emmy for his performance in "Breaking Bad" at Sunday's awards.
