“Better Call Saul” star Bob Odenkirk has been hospitalized after collapsing on the show’s set on Tuesday, TheWrap has confirmed.

The 58-year-old actor was filming for the “Breaking Bad” spinoff’s sixth and final season in New Mexico when he collapsed.

Representatives for AMC Networks and Odenkirk didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to TMZ, which first reported the story, the incident happened around 11:30 a.m.; the nature of Odenkirk’s ailment has not been made public, but as of Wednesday morning he remained in the hospital and under doctors’ care.

Since reprising his role as con-man lawyer Saul Goodman in the prequel spinoff series to “Breaking Bad,” Odenkirk has earned four Golden Globe nominations for best actor in a television series drama, and four Emmy nominations for outstanding lead actor in a drama series.

For the record: A previous version of this story incorrectly reported the location of the “Better Call Saul” shoot where Odenkirk was working when he collapsed.
