The Guardian reports:
Martin Landau, the actor whose gaunt, hangdog features graced films by film-makers as varied as Alfred Hitchcock, Woody Allen and Tim Burton has died. He was 89, and his death was confirmed by his publicist “following a short hospitalization”.
Arguably Landau’s career high point arrived in 1995, when he won the best supporting actor Oscar for his role as Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood, the Burton-directed biopic of the infamous director of Plan 9 From Outer Space and other notorious films.
Landau also earned Oscar nominations for 1987’s Tucker: The Man and His Dream and 1989’s Crimes and Misdemeanors. Some of you probably remember him best from Mission: Impossible.
