Actor Martin Landau Dies at Age 89

Oscar-winning actor Martin Landau died Saturday of unexpected health complications in Los Angeles at the age of 89. Landau's career spanned more than 50 years on stage, film and television. His breakthrough role was the villain in Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1959 thriller North by Northwest, and he became a household name in 1966 in the hit TV series "Mission Impossible," in which he starred with his then-wife, Barbara Bain. Landau's career kicked into high gear in the late 1980s when he earned Oscar nominations for the movies Tucket: The Man and His Dream and Woody Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanors. Landau finally won his first Oscar in 1994 thanks to a supporting role as late horror star Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton's Ed Wood. Martin Landau also earned Emmy nominations for his roles in the TV series "Entourage" and "Without a Trace."
