Cranston's role as Walter White may be the selling point for the memoirs as Breaking Bad was hugely popular and has already gone down in history as one of the most viewed and widely discussed series on television. However, the memoirs will not merely concern Cranston's role on the show but his life and career leading up to, as the publishers aptly put it, to "one of the greatest performances of our time."
In their press release Scribner promised the 58-year-old 's memoirs will be "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."

Cranston starred in the hit series for five years between 2008 and 2013. The prolific actor has appeared in numerous films and television productions over his 34 year career. However, he garnered numerous awards and attention playing the chemistry teacher turned meth cook Walter White on Breaking Bad. Cranston's writing is allegedly as impressive as his acting with his "thrilled" publisher claiming the former Malcolm in the Middle actor "writes the way he acts - with fierce commitment, intelligence and humor."
Cranston alluded to the importance of this role in a statement Scribner included in their press release. Cranston stated "Walter White taught me a lot-some of it useful, some of it dangerous. 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."
Cranston's memoirs will be released in Fall 2015.
