Other media, such as Variety or The Hollywood Reporter, later confirmed the TMZ scoop.
At first it was said that the actor was working in Los Angeles, United States, when he fainted, but later TMZ and The Hollywood Reporter assured that he was in New Mexico.
Odenkirk rose to fame for the role of the lawyer Saul Goodman in the acclaimed series “Breaking Bad” (2008-2013).
The success of his character led him to have his own series spinoff, the prequel entitled “Better Call Saul” further boosted Odenkirk’s career.
For his role as Saul Goodman, Bob Odenkirk was nominated for four Emmy Awards.
For the role of Jimmy McGill, the lawyer who raises his level of corruption to become Saul Goodman, Odenkirk obtained four nominations to the Emmy Awards, where he was twice awarded as screenwriter, for his work on The Ben Stiller Show and Saturday Night Live.
“Better Call Saul” was released in 2015 and will say goodbye with its sixth season, which is what they are filming now after a stop forced by the coronavirus pandemic.
On the sidelines of television, Odenkirk presented the violent and raw action thriller in theaters this year “Nobody” (2021).
