“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston is set to write a memoir about his life and work during the six years he spent on the popular AMC show.
According to reports, Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, will publish Cranston's memoir in 2015. The publishing house will also release an audio book of the memoir simultaneously. The series finale of “Breaking Bad,” which aired in September 2013, notched record ratings.
"Walter White taught me a lot - some of it useful, some of it dangerous," Cranston reportedly said of the character he plays in the drama series, in a press release. "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."
Publisher Nan Graham reportedly said Cranston "writes the way he acts - with fierce commitment, intelligence and humor."
Before his appearance on the AMC show, Cranston was best known for his comic role in "Malcolm in the Middle." He later made a career shift by playing a chemistry teacher-turned-meth cook on "Breaking Bad" for which he received an Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series in 2008, 2009 and 2010. In addition, Cranston also won four Emmys as the show's producer.
