Mission: Impossible actor dead: Martin Landau, Oscar winner who starred in Ed Wood and North by Northwest, dies aged 89 following unexpected complications
His publicist Dick Gutmann confirmed his death in a statement on Sunday night, following unexpected complications after a short hospital visit.
Mr. Gutmann said: "We are overcome with sadness."
He added that Landau died at UCLA Medical Centre in LA, following "unexpected complications during a short hospitalisation."
Martin was born in 1928, and was previously a cartoonist for the New York Daily News before becoming an actor.
During the span of his incredible career, he featured in movies such as North by North West, and played a commander in Space: 1999.
He also played master of disguise Rollin Hand in the TV series Mission: Impossible, for which he received several Emmy Award nominations and a Golden Globe award.
He leaves behind two daughters, Susan and Juliet, from his marriage to actress and former Mission: Impossible co-star Barbara Bain.
He also starred in NBC comedy Buffalo Bill, in which Dabney Coleman starred.
The actor also played a part in the HBO series Entourage, in which his catchphrase "would that be something you’d be interested in" was a big hit amongst fans.
Just last year, Martin did an interview with the Washington Times to give advice to young actors wanting to follow in his footsteps.
