As is the man who won a best supporting actor Oscar for playing him. RIP Martin Landau.

Quote:
The actor Martin Landau, best known for roles in the TV series Mission: Impossible and 1960s blockbusters like Cleopatra, has died, aged 89.
His publicist Dick Guttman confirmed the death, saying: "We are overcome with sadness."
Landau won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 1995 for portraying the horror movie star Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood.
He died on Saturday in Los Angeles of "unexpected complications" following a hospital visit.
Landau was born in New York and started out as a cartoonist for the New York Daily News before moving to theatre and then cinema acting.

@izzythepush,
I could have figured he died 10 years ago. RIP Sir Martin.

I remember Landau from Mission Impossible. In his prime, he always played a man of action, but one who was also a thinker. He's one of those actors you see for decades and always seems to give a memorable performance.

I didn't know he had campy Ed Wood in him. A delightful surprise.

@izzythepush,
Landau was fabulous as Bela Lugosi. He'll be sorely missed.

@glitterbag,
He was always likable, which I think is worthy in itself, something well beyond the likes of Ricky Gervais.
