Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston is to lend his Hiesenbergian tones to a profane children's nursery rhyme.

Following Samuel L. Jackson's successful narration of "You Have to F***ing Eat", Cranston will take over for novelist Adam Mansbach's sequel "GoThe F*** To Sleep".

"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.

Here's a sample line (imagine in Walter White's creepily calm, deep voice):

"The bunnies are munching on carrots. The lambs nibble grasses and bleat. I know you’re too hungry to reason with but you have to f***ing eat."

Cranston found himself in an argument over what is suitable for children with Florida mums recently, when several launched a campaign to remove Breaking Bad figurines from Toys R' Us stores.

"Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures." I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest", the actor tweeted.

"Go The F*** To Sleep" sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide, with the audio version being available on Audible from Wednesday.
