Academy Award-Winning Actor Martin Landau, known for his leading roles in North By Northwest and the 1960s Mission: Impossible TV series, has died. He was 89.
He died on Saturday of "unexpected complications" at the UCLA Medical Center, his publicist confirmed.
In his seven-decade acting career, Landau worked with a cast of Hollywood director greats, including Alfred Hitchcock, Francis Ford Coppola, Woody Allen and Tim Burton.
Francis Ford Coppola's 1988 film Tucker: The Man and His Dream won Landau a Golden Globe Award as well as an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. The following year, he was nominated for the same Oscar category for portraying philandering ophthalmologist Judah Rosenthal in Woody Allen's Crimes And Misdemeanors (1989).
It was his role as the haunting Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton's biopic, Ed Wood, that finally scored him the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 1994.
