After a brief, but impressive Broadway career, New York-born Landau made his film debut in 1959.

"It was an impulsive move on my part to do that", Landau said in 2013 (via THR). "I think he thought I was going to be an usher". And in the 1950s, he was best friends with James Dean and, for several months, the boyfriend of Marilyn Monroe.

In 1950, he had film appearances in Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest, he played regular roles in the television series Mission: Impossible and Space: 1999. Landau performed as the henchman for one of the main characters. But you didn't necessarily have to take the lessons to learn from him; merely watching him onscreen was a master class in how to work with whatever you're given.

OSCAR-winning actor Martin Landau has died at the age of 89 after suffering "unexpected complications" during a hospital visit. The role of a seemingly decent, venerable man harboring a dark secret became a Landau specialty. The one show he did not star in, though, was Star Trek. It wasn't until Landau began collaborating with Tim Burton that he actually won an Oscar, getting the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his work as Bela Lugosi in the 1994 biopic Ed Wood.

More recently, Landau earned Emmy noms for playing the father of Anthony LaPaglia's character on CBS' Without a Trace and guest-starring as an out-of-touch movie producer on HBO's Entourage. Landau was offered the lead role, alongside his then-wife Barbara Bain whom he had met while working on Mission: Impossible, as an attempt to increase its appeal to U.S. audiences. THR notes that Landau found a "kindred spirit" in Burton, who would later cast him in Sleepy Hollow and Frankenweenie.

"In size and dimension, it's probably the best role I've had since 'Cleopatra, ' and my 10 best scenes in "Cleopatra" weren't in the movie", he told The New York Times.

Landau was famous for his successful role in the 1960s TV show "Mission: Impossible".
