Bryan Cranston reads profane hit nursery rhyme

NEW YORK (AP) — Bryan Cranston has lent his voice to a sequel to the profane hit nursery rhyme “Go the (Bleep) to Sleep.”

The “Breaking Bad” and “Malcolm in the Middle” star follows in the footsteps of Samuel L. Jackson by narrating “You Have to (Bleeping) Eat,” by novelist Adam Mansbach. The new audiobook will be available free from Audible starting Wednesday.

“This is a very funny book and my hope is that listeners will agree that I can swear with just as much panache as Samuel Jackson,” Cranston said in a statement.

“Go the (Bleep) to Sleep” was a surprise hit in 2011, inspired by Mansbach’s daughter’s resistance to sleeping.

British fans can hear Stephen Fry read the new book for free from www.canongate.tv before Nov. 19.
