Bob Odenkirk collapsed on the set of Better Call Saul Tuesday, leading to the actor being hospitalized later that same night. The comedian and actor was filming the sixth season of the series in New Mexico, according to TMZ, when the incident occurred.
Odenkirk, who is known for his role as Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad and the spin-off series Better Call Saul, has no publicly disclosed health conditions that would have contributed to the collapse. It is currently unclear what caused the event.
According to sources from TMZ, “Odenkirk went down, and was immediately surrounded by crew members who called an ambulance.”
Michael McKean, the actor who plays Odenkirk’s on-screen brother in the series, joined the plethora of well-wishers on social media, tweeting “Sending huge love to our @mrbobodenkirk. You got this, brother.”

Bryan Cranston, known for his role as Walter White alongside Odenkirk in Breaking Bad, posted a photo of himself with Odenkirk on Instagram.
The caption read, “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.”
The post went on: “Please take a moment in your day today to think about him and send positive thoughts and prayers his way, thank you.”
Odenkirk is continuing to receive medical care at this time. “He WILL get through this,” says Odenkirk’s friend and former Mr. Show cohort David Cross.
