It’s nice to know that even though Breaking Bad may have gone to the television equivalent of the big blue meth lab in the sky, we won’t be fully rid of the show for quite a while. First there was the announcement of Better Call Saul, the prequel spin off aiming to keep Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks on our TV screens. Now we’re being told we’ll be getting a behind the scenes look at the whole series with a memoir from Bryan Cranston.
America’s drug-dealing darling says the book will “tell the stories of my life and reveal the secrets and lies that I lived with for six years shooting Breaking Bad.” It must be a lot of pressure to know and keep the secrets of a popular show like that, crushed under the weight of a thousand non-disclosure agreements. So if Cranston wants to vent, let’s all pull up a chair. May I suggest for a title, Behind the Tighty Whiteys: The Bryan Cranston Story? That one’s for free.
The book will be coming our way courtesy of Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, next May.
Vivian Kane considered going with ‘Walter Whaaaat? The Secrets of Breaking Bad,’ but that was too terrible to subject you to.
