Good news, folks … Bob Odenkirk is in such good spirits he’s now joking around with friends, according to one of them … actor David Cross.
Cross says the “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” star is doing so good, in fact, fans will soon be hearing from him. Cross updated Bob’s legion of fans Friday morning saying, “Just got off the phone with Bob and he’s doing great!”
David added, “Both [Bob] 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!!!”

That’s welcome news considering what he’s gone through over the last couple of days. TMZ broke the story … Bob was rushed to the hospital after collapsing on the set of “Better Call Saul” while filming in New Mexico.
We later learned the emergency was a “heart-related” incident. For a moment it was touch-and-go. He was not conscious during his initial hours in an Albuquerque hospital before he eventually woke up — and Cross now sounds confident Bob will be back to his old self.
As we reported … there was an outpouring of support following the medical scare. “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston shared a pic on Instagram and asked fans to “please take a moment in your day today to think about him and send positive thoughts and prayers.”
