Bryan Cranston landed his first role at seven, when his father, a struggling actor and director, cast him in a commercial. Soon Bryan was haunting the local movie theater, reenacting scenes with his older brother. Acting was clearly his destiny - until one day his father disappeared. As a young man on a classic cross-country motorcycle trip, he found himself stranded at a rest area in the Blue Ridge Mountains. To pass the time, he read a tattered copy of Hedda Gabler, and in a flash he found himself face-to-face with his original calling.
Bryan Cranston joins Robin Morgan in the Audible Studios for an exclusive interview on the release of his autobiography, A Life in Parts. Bryan discusses the writing process, the experience of recording the audiobook, and of course his role as Walter White in Breaking Bad.
