Bryan Cranston is writing a Breaking Bad memoir

He is the one who writes.

HE MAY HAVE hung up his Breaking Bad hat last year but Bryan Cranston isn’t ready to say goodbye to Walter White just yet.

The actor is set to pen a memoir of his Breaking Bad years, recalling his experiences during years he spent on set.

In a statement released to The New York Times, Cranston said the memoir will “tell the stories of my life and reveal the secrets and lies that I lived with for six years shooting Breaking Bad.”

Deadline says he is eager to reveal what he learned from the iconic character: “Walter White taught me a lot” Cranston revealed, “some of it useful, some of it dangerous.

Cranston – who will return to cinema screens later this year in the highly anticipated Godzilla reboot – is currently treading the boards as US President Lyndon B Johnson in Broadway play All The Way, but appears to have found time to pen the memoir.

Scribner publisher Nan Graham said that Cranston “writes the way he acts – with fierce commitment, intelligence and humour”.

Breaking Bad fans are utterly delighted with the news, and some rather high profile ones are already suggesting possible endings for the book.

There’ll be an audio version too, for those of you who miss those dulcet tones.
