According to TMZ, Emmy-winner Bob Odenkirk collapsed on the set of his critically-acclaimed AMC drama “Better Call Saul” and had to be rushed to the hospital.
Once Odenkirk collapsed on his hit show, which is the prequel to the hit series “Breaking Bad,” he was immediately “surrounded by crew members who called an ambulance.”
Support from his fellow actors and fans has poured in all over social media.
While the cause of the star’s collapse has not yet been made public, the outlet continued, “We’re told it’s unclear if he was conscious when he was transported, but a source close to Odenkirk tells us he is still in the hospital under the care of doctors.”
Actor Michael McKean, who plays Saul’s brother Chuck, tweeted, “Sending huge love to our @mrbobodenkirk. You got this, brother.”

Meanwhile, the lead of that show, Bryan Cranston posted a photo of the pair with this message: “Today I woke up to news that has made me anxious all morning. My friend, Bob Odenkirk collapsed last night on the set of Better Call Saul. He is in the hospital in Albuquerque and receiving the medical attention he needs but his condition is not known to the public as yet. Please take a moment in your day today to think about him and send positive thoughts and prayers his way, thank you.”
Fingers crossed that all is well. Bob was born in Berwyn, IL which is where I got my start doing tax work. It's a working-class town, and Bob is very much a typical Berwynite….
Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
