Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston is the latest star to land a publishing deal.

The multiple-Emmy winner will lift the lid on his life and career in the book, highlighting the five seasons he spent on the acclaimed Tv series as chemistry teacher-turned-drug kingpin Walter White.

A statement from the actor reads: "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, who is also known for his comedic roles in Seinfeld and Malcolm in the Middle, is currently starring on Broadway as former U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson in All The Way.

His book, released through publishing house Scribner, is scheduled to hit shelves in autumn 2015.

The announcement comes in the same week Two and a Half Men's Jon Cryer and rocker Flea confirmed they are also working on autobiographies.
