ET has learned that the 58-year-old actor collapsed on the set of Better Call Saul and was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday. Odenkirk currently remains under medical care. No further update on his condition was shared.
Odenkirk was filming in Albuquerque, New Mexico, when he fell and crew members called the ambulance, per TMZ who was first to report the news. The outlet reports that law enforcement received a call to the lot at 11:34 a.m. PT. It is unclear if Odenkirk was conscious when he was transported to the hospital, per the outlet.
Odenkirk is currently shooting the sixth and final season of Better Call Saul. The spinoff debuted in 2015, two years after the series finale of Breaking Bad. It follows con-man turned small-time lawyer, Jimmy McGill (Odenkirk), starting six years before the events of Breaking Bad, showing his transformation into the persona of criminal-for-hire Saul Goodman.
After hearing the news, Odenkirk's Breaking Bad co-star, Bryan Cranston, asked fans to keep the actor in their thoughts and prayers.
"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," Cranston posted to Instagram along with a photo of him and Odenkirk. "Please take a moment in your day today to think about him and send positive thoughts and prayers his way, thank you."
I will share what I know when I can but Bob is one of the strongest people I know both physically and spiritually. He WILL get through this.
Meanwhile, Odenkirk's longtime writing partner, David Cross, assured fans on Twitter, "I will share what I know when I can but Bob is one of the strongest people I know both physically and spiritually. He WILL get through this."
