Craig Ferguson gets book deal to write memoir

HarperCollins has signed Craig Ferguson to a deal to write his memoirs, "American on Purpose," for publication in fall 2009. The actor/comedian/talk-show host said: "(I) hope that it will inspire other alcoholic punk rock drummers from Scotland to find their true place in U.S. latenight television. I wanted to get the story down before I get so old I forget it and start believing the crap on Wikipedia." (Variety)
