Bob Odenkirk has reportedly been hospitalized after collapsing on the set of his AMC show "Better Call Saul."

TMZ first reported the actor was filming a scene for the "Breaking Bad" spinoff in New Mexico on Tuesday when he collapsed. According to the site, Odenkirk was taken to the hospital immediately after his collapse.

The original report said Odenkirk has remained in the hospital since the incident. Representatives for Odenkirk initially declined to comment when reached by Insider. On Wednesday evening, the actor's reps sent a statement to BuzzFeed News reporter Julia Reinstein, saying Odenkirk was "in stable condition after experiencing a heart related incident."

Odenkirk's son also tweeted out a simple assurance: "He's going to be okay."

Following news of the actor's collapse, Odenkirk's "Breaking Bad" costar Bryan Cranston shared a message of support on Instagram along with a photo of him and Odenkirk.

"Today I woke up to news that has made me anxious all morning," Cranston wrote. "My friend, Bob Odenkirk collapsed last night on the set of Better Call Saul."

After explaining to followers that Odenkirk is currently in an Albuquerque, New Mexico, hospital "receiving the medical attention he needs," Cranston encouraged his followers to keep his former costar in their thoughts, since Odenkirk's 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," Cranston concluded.

Odenkirk's "Mr. Show" co-creator and costar David Cross also made a statement about Odenkirk on Twitter.

"I will share what I know when I can but Bob is one of the strongest people I know both physically and spiritually," the "Arrested Development" star wrote. "He WILL get through this."

Odenkirk began his career writing for "Saturday Night Live" in the late '80s and early '90s, and has appeared on shows like "How I Met Your Mother," "Roseanne," and "Arrested Development" throughout his career.

The actor received critical acclaim for his role as crooked lawyer Saul Goodman on hit drama "Breaking Bad," a role he reprised in "Better Call Saul." More recently, he starred in the action film "Nobody."
