Oscar-Winning Actor Martin Landau Dead At 89

Martin Landau, also a star of the 1960s television series “Mission: Impossible” who made a late-career comeback having an Academy Award-winning performance from the 1994 movie “Ed Wood,” died on Saturday at age 89, his publicist said on Sunday.

Landau died at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles from unexpected complications through a short hospitalization for an untreatable illness, publicist Dick Guttman said in a statement.

Landau won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his portrayal of horror movie star Bela Lugosi from the Tim Burton movie “Ed Wood.” He was nominated for an Academy Award before, first for his execution at Francis Coppola’s “Tucker” and for Woody Allen’s “Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
