Johnson in the bio-play All the Way. In film, Cranston has won two Screen Actors Guild Awards and received an Academy Award nomination for his leading role in Trumbo. Among his numerous television and film appearances, he was nominated for a Golden Globe and three Emmys for his portrayal of Hal in FOX’s Malcolm in the Middle.

“Bryan would be the guy to be stuck on a desert island with. Not only would he be great company but he’d build you a hut and find you some food.” –Jane Kaczmarek

“He’s my mentor, and hands down the greatest guy I’ll ever work with.” –Aaron Paul.

In his riveting memoir, A Life in Parts, Bryan Cranston traces his zigzag journey from his chaotic childhood to mega stardom by vividly revisiting the many parts he’s played, on camera, including: astronaut, dentist, detective, candy bar spokesperson, and off–paperboy, farmhand, security guard, dating consultant, murder suspect, dock loader, son, brother, lover, husband, father.

Cranston chronicles his unlikely rise from a soap opera regular, trying to learn the ropes and the politics of show business on the fly, to a recurring spot as Tim Whatley on Seinfeld, finding himself an indelible part of popular culture. He recalls his run as the well-meaning goofball, Hal, on Malcolm in the Middle, gives a bracing account of his challenging run on Broadway as President Lyndon Johnson.

He also dives deep into the grittiest, most fascinating details of his greatest role, explaining how he searched inward for the personal darkness that would help him create one of the most captivating performances ever captured on screen: Walter White, chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin.
