Actor Martin Landau dies at 89

Hollwood icon, Martin Landau has died at the age of 89. He died on Saturday at UCLA Medical Center after a short hospitalization where he suffered unexpected complications.


Landau is one of the most enduring actors of our time.

Among his credits are Alfred Hitchcock's "North by Northwest", Tim Burton's "Ed Wood" and "Cleopatra."

Landau had been a cartoonist before starting his acting career in the '50s. He appeared in nearly 200 films and TV shows during his illustrious career and worked until his death, TMZ reports.

His big break came in 1966 when he was cast as Rollin Hand in the "Mission: Impossible" TV series alongside his then wife Barbra Bain. The role got him repeatedly nominated for Emmys and helped him nab the Best Male TV Star Golden Globe in 1968.
