Bob Odenkirk has been rushed to hospital after collapsing on the set of his Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul.
According to TMZ, the actor and comedian fell to the floor during filming at 11:34am New Mexico local time and was taken to hospital after crew members rushed to his aid.
There have been no updates on Odenkirk’s status – or whether he was conscious when the ambulance took him to the hospital – but sources have revealed that he is still being treated by doctors.
The 58-year-old took on the role of the slimy criminal lawyer back in 2009 in an episode of Vince Gilligan’s television masterpiece.
Fans have been flocking to social media to send their thoughts and prayers to the Nebraska star.
One Twitter user wrote: “Nooooo! Hope he’s okay!”
Another said: “Oh no! One of my favorite actors. Hope it’s nothing serious. Get better Bob!!!”
While a third tweeted: “Hopefully it’s nothing serious. Take care sir.”
Actor Sterling K Brown (Black Panther) wrote: “Wishing the wonderful actor and exceptional human being @mrbobodenkirk a speedy and full recovery.”
Odenkirk was shooting the sixth and final season of the acclaimed AMC show, which is a prequel to the events of Breaking Bad.
The actor has been nominated for four Emmys for his portrayal of the sleaze bag lawyer Jimmy McGill – who later adopts the pseudonym Saul Goodman after becoming irreversibly crooked.
Odenkirk first found success on the sketch comedy show he co-created with David Cross (Arrested Development) titled Mr. Show With Bob and David, which first aired on HBO and ran from 1995 to 1998.
He is also the recipient of two Emmys for his work on The Ben Stiller Show and Saturday Night Live.
Most recently, Odenkirk starred in the Ilya Naishuller directed Nobody – a violent action-thriller that sees Odenkirk’s Hutch Mansell hunted down by a vicious drug lord after intervening during the harassment of a woman by a group of men.
Odenkirk has also appeared in The Post, Little Women, The Incredibles 2 and the television adaptation of Fargo.
AMC recently announced that it has started work on Slippin’ Jimmy, an animated prequel to Better Call Saul – Slippin’ Jimmy was Saul’s alter-ego back in his young days as a small-time con artist.
The show will be written by Ariel Levine (Better Call Saul) and Kathleen Williams-Fosheem (Chicago P.D.).
Our thoughts are with Bob and his family!
