Bryan Cranston to Pen Memoir on Breaking Bad Years, Craft of Acting
In books that I absolutely cannot wait to read news, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is going to write a memoir that focuses, in large part, on the six years he spent filming Breaking Bad.
“Walter White taught me a lot—some of it useful, some of it dangerous,” said Cranston. “With this book, I want to tell the stories of my life and reveal the secrets and lies that I lived with for six years shooting Breaking Bad.”
Secrets and lies? Do tell, Mr. White.
Publisher Scribner (a Simon & Schuster imprint), says that there will be other components to the memoir other than the making of Breaking Bad–but it’s clear that the groundbreaking AMC show will be a main focus.
“Cranston will trace the remarkable career of an actor who worked as a journeyman for many years and—through talent, tenacity, and luck—landed a role that transformed his life. A deeply candid work, Cranston’s memoir will offer fascinating insights into his early years, the craft of acting, and his experiences on the landmark series Breaking Bad,” they say.
Cranston hasn’t yet tweeted about the new book, but he has discussed his nervousness in regards to opening on Broadway. Cranston is currently playing President Lyndon B. Johnson in the play All the Way.
It's opening night for my Broadway debut. I'm finding fun, new places to throw up. Actually, I'm very excited! Come see me in "All The Way."
