Martin Landau, a celebrity of the 1960s television show “Mission: Impossible” who made a late-career comeback with an Academy Award-winning operation from the 1994 film “Ed Wood,” died on Saturday at age 89, his publicist said on Sunday.
Landau died at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles from unforeseen complications during a brief 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 film “Ed Wood.” He was nominated for the Academy Award before, first for his operation from Francis Coppola’s “Tucker” and for Woody Allen’s “Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
