Celebs send Bob Odenkirk well wishes after on-set collapse

Bob Odenkirk collapsed on the set of his show, “Better Call Saul,” Tuesday night and the love from his Hollywood friends has started to pour in.

Many of the 58-year-old’s pals and former co-stars such as Bryan Cranston, David Cross and more sent well wishes to him after his incident.

Cross, 57, who worked with Odenkirk on their ’90s HBO series “Mr. Show with Bob and David,” tweeted, “I will share what I know when I can but Bob is one of the strongest people I know both physically and spiritually. He WILL get through this.”

Cranston, 65, Odenkirk’s “Breaking Bad” castmate, wrote a heartwarming Instagram post, saying, “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. Please take a moment in your day today to think about him and send positive thoughts and prayers his way, thank you.”

You got this, brother.” Elijah Wood chimed in, “Oh man, really hope Bob Odenkirk is ok.”
