Following a long, steady, workmanlike career as character actor who had occasional appearances in sitcoms like Seinfeld and The King Of Queens, and a regular supporting role in Malcolm In The Middle, Bryan Cranston played the part of a lifetime. For five seasons, the veteran thespian portrayed Walter White, a cancer-stricken chemistry teacher-turned meth kingpin, in Breaking Bad. Cranston’s unforgettable starring performance in the basic cable drama helped Breaking Bad earn critical acclaim, take home a mess of awards, and garner astounding ratings by the time the series’ 2013 finale came around.

Now a household name, Cranston has kept busy since Breaking Bad‘s conclusion by doing voiceover work and acting in numerous TV shows and films, including his starring role in Trumbo, which earned him an Oscar nomination in the Best Actor category. Evidently, Cranston also found time to write a book. As part of his tour for his book, A Life In Parts, the four-time Emmy winner will drop by Pabst Theater on Saturday, October 22 to read excerpts and engage in an audience Q&A session.

Tickets go on sale Friday, August 26. They cost $35 and include a copy of A Life In Parts.
