Walter White who? In the new trailer for Trumbo, Bryan Cranston stars as the celebrated screenwriter whose career came crashing down when he and other Hollywood figures were accused of communism. Dalton Trumbo was one of several filmmakers called in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1947, and he was jailed for refusing to name other suspected communists.
