A few weeks ago, the 58-year-old actor revealed he had a small heart attack when he collapsed on the set of Better Call Saul. He said they were able to clear the blockage without surgery saying he will be back soon.
Odenkirk has been nominated for four Emmys for playing the title character, a down-on-his-luck lawyer named Jimmy McGill who becomes increasingly corrupt and adopts the pseudonym Saul Goodman, the “criminal lawyer” who appeared in dozens of episodes of “Breaking Bad” before getting his own spin-off.
Both shows were shot in and mostly set in New Mexico.
