RUST ARMORER SAYS ALEC BALDWIN POINTED GUN AT HALYNA HUTCHINS ‘AGAINST ALL RULES AND COMMON SENSE:’ CNN reports that the armorer on the set of Rust said she was not called to inspect the gun involved in cinematographer Halyna Hutchins‘ death. In a statement released on Saturday (March 12th), Hannah Gutierrez Reed said, “Mr. Baldwin knew that he could never point a firearm at crew members under any circumstances and had a duty of safety to his fellow crew members.

BOB ODENKIRK SAYS HE DOESN’T REMEMBER COLLAPSING ON THE SET OF BETTER CALL SAUL: According to Us Weekly, Bob Odenkirk opened up about his “heart incident” on the set of Better Call Saul nearly eight months ago. “It was deadly serious and my widow-maker artery was completely blocked. That’s why it’s called the widow-maker ’cause you die when that happens. But I went down. And I was very lucky that my co-stars, Rhea Seehorn and Patrick Fabian, were right nearby and they rushed over to me and set off the alarm, screaming,” he said. Odenkirk added, “I was not present for any of it. But I’m told it was a pretty shocking day on set. And traumatizing for all my costars and crew members and people I love very much who love me and stood by my side and then went to the hospital with me.”

The medication rocks the hormonal system a little bit but the good news is, she was found to be cancer-free at this point. So we’re just on guard to make sure it doesn’t come back.”
