'Breaking Bad' Fans Will Go Nuts Over the Tentative Title for Bryan Cranston's Memoir
Fresh off of the success of Godzilla and his Tony win for his incredible performance as President Lyndon B. Johnson on Broadway in All the Way, actor Bryan Cranston is taking some much-needed time off to...write a memoir that will include insight on his years on Breaking Bad . As if that news wasn't enough to make Breaking Bad fans throw a pizza on their roof with excitement, the man who played the iconic role of meth kingpin Walter White revealed to Vulture that the tentative title for his book will be none other than "Say My Name." All together now: "Heisenberg." "You're goddamn right."
In Cranston's words, the book — which, according to the New York Times, will be published by Scribner for a fall 2015 release —will "tell the stories of my life and reveal the secrets and lies that I lived with for six years shooting Breaking Bad." The 58-year-old star also told Vulture that he doesn't know if the Say My Name "will stick" and that "they're just calling it that for now to see if that works." Hey, there's always I Am the One Who Knocks: The Bryan Cranston Story.
The awesome (albeit tentative, though they should really consider keeping it) title for Cranston's memoir got us to thinking about what some of his Breaking Bad co-stars should name their own books if they were to also write one.
Aaron Paul: Yeah, Mr. White! Yeah, Memoir!
