Update: A spokesperson for Better Call Saul‘s Bob Odenkirk has confirmed that the 58 year-old actor is “in stable condition after experiencing a “heart-related incident” last night. Good to hear, but what’s the difference between a heart attack and a “heart-related incident”?
Earlier: Hollywood Elsewhere wants Bob Odenkirk to recover from whatever it was that floored him last night. Everyone wants him well. The 58 year-old actor “collapsed” (as in “fell to the ground”) while shooting a Better Call Saul episode in Alberquerque, New Mexico.
Bryan Cranston posted on Instagram that everyone should send “positive thoughts and prayers,” etc.
May I ask something? Odenkirk is a major public figure, well known and well loved, so why isn’t someone close to him putting out a statement about his condition? That would be the considerate thing as far as his fans are concerned, no?
Speculation is that this was either a stroke or a heart attack, and it could may been caused by…oh, who knows? Odenkirk put himself through a rigorous fitness regime a couple of years ago for Nobody, but that was then.
People suffering a heart attack don’t generally “collapse”. They usually complain of chest pains and shortness of breath and an aching left arm as they sit down and get out their cell phone to call a doctor.
