Bob Odenkirk Hospitalized Over ‘Heart-Related Incident’

US actor Bob Odenkirk was hospitalized for a heart-related incident Tuesday after collapsing on the set of his Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul.

The 58-year-old man is stable, out of harm’s way and on the rebound at an Albuquerque hospital, informed sources told TMZ.

However, when he was rushed to the hospital after collapsing, he did not “look good” and remained unconscious for the first few hours in the hospital, TMZ added.

Odenkirk’s rep told TMZ: “Bob and his family would like to express gratitude for the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, as well as his cast, crew and producers who have stayed by his side.”

The rep also thanked people for their good wishes and asked for privacy “at this time as Bob works on his recovery.”

According to multiple reports, Odenkirk was filming a scene on the New Mexico set of Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul when he collapsed.

The actor was immediately attended by staff members, who took him by ambulance to a hospital in the Los Angeles area, where he received treatment.

Better Call Saul’s sixth and final season, expected to screen on the AMC cable network in 2022, is currently filming.

The spin-off follows the evolution of Bob’s character, an earnest lawyer and former con-man named Jimmy McGill, to the Saul Goodman character, a greedy criminal defense attorney.

Since the prequel aired in 2015 following Breaking Bad’s final in 2013, Bob Odenkirk has received four Emmy nominations for his role.

Previously, he was a comedy writer for Saturday Night Live and The Ben Stiller Show, where he played various characters.

He also co-created and co-starred in the HBO sketch comedy series Mr. Show with Bob and David.

The US actor’s most recent works include the action thriller Nobody.

On Wednesday morning, Bob’s close friend and Breaking Bad co-star Bryan Cranston asked fans to “take a moment in your day today to think about him and send positive thoughts and prayers his way.”

Better Call Saul co-star Michael McKean, who plays his brother Chuck in the series, also posted his support on social media, writing: “Sending huge love to our Bob Odenkirk. You got this, brother.”

Other actors and celebrities who reacted to Odenkirk’s collapse were Aaron Paul, John Hodgman, and Elijah Wood.
