He's played a president of the United States, a Preparation H salesman (the early-'80s commercial is on YouTube) and, perhaps most famously, a math teacher turned ruthless drug manufacturer. Bryan Cranston has covered a lot of ground, and tonight he offers up his memoir, A Life in Parts (Scribner, $27), discussing it with Jay Roach, who directed him as LBJ in Broadway and HBO smash All the Way. From his off-kilter childhood to captivating turns in everything from Seinfeld to Malcolm in the Middle to his current position as pop-culture touchstone and all-around nice guy, Cranston bears out Aristotle's philosophy that the whole is, in fact, greater than the sum of its parts.
