Odenkirk is fresh off his turn from Nobody, a pretty gritty little John Wick type film without the slickness. Which made it better for me.
Let’s give positive vibes out as this is an obit I really don’t want to write.
“Better Call Saul” star Bob Odenkirk was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday after collapsing on the set of the AMC show, Variety has confirmed.
Odenkirk is currently in production on the sixth and final season of “Better Call Saul,” a spin-off of the wildly popular series “Breaking Bad.” Odenkirk collapsed on Tuesday at the show’s set in New Mexico and crew members immediately called an ambulance. Odenkirk is still receiving medical care, though the cause of the collapse has not been disclosed.
Pull through Bob, you’re a great actor in this day and age.
Better Call Saul was created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. It is a spin-off, prequel, and a sequel of Gilligan’s previous series, Breaking Bad. Set in the early to mid-2000s in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the series develops Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), an earnest lawyer and former con-man, into a greedy criminal defense attorney known as Saul Goodman.
Also shown is the moral decline of retired police officer Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), who becomes closely affiliated with the Juarez drug cartel to support his granddaughter and her widowed mother.
Jimmy and Mike’s interactions remain sporadic until their respective storylines fully converge.
The show premiered on AMC on February 8, 2015, airing five seasons to date. A sixth and final season, consisting of 13 episodes, is set to premiere in early 2022.
