The Emmy-winning actor, known for his role as Walter White in "Breaking Bad," has a deal with Scribner for what is described as a "deeply candid" memoir.
Scribner announced Thursday the book is due out in the fall of 2015. It is currently untitled.
The 58-year-old Cranston said in a statement issued by Scribner that he promises to disclose the "secrets and lies" he endured while starring in "Breaking Bad." He said that from his tortured TV character he learned both "useful" and "dangerous" lessons.
Cranston also is known for his featured role in the Oscar-winning "Argo" and for his current performance as Lyndon B. Johnson in the Broadway show "All the Way."
