Whew! Good News About Bob Odenkirk from Pal David Cross: “He’s doing great!”


David Cross, who starred with Bob Odenkirk in “Mr. Show,” has great news about his friend.

Cross posted to Twitter: “Just got off the phone with Bob and he’s doing great! Joking and japing and joshing. Both he and his family are overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and concern everyone has shown. You will be hearing from him soon. But he’s doing really well!!!”

Thank goodness. There’s been an outpouring of concern for Odenkirk ever since he collapsed on the set of “Better Call Saul.” He had some kind of heart attack, and there was trepidation because it took almost 24 hours to get a report on him, but sounds good.

Better call Bob!
