As per the statement from his publicist Dick Guttman, Landau died at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles following "unexpected complications during a short hospitalization,".

Arquette recalled working with the star on cult movie Ed Wood, calling her time with him "a joy", adding, "What a talented, sweet generous actor", while Matlin shared: "So sad to read about the passing of Martin Landau".

"It's impossible to overestimate the job that Landau does here as this sepulchral Hungarian", Washington Post critic Hal Hinson wrote in his review of the 1994 film.

Also in the 2000s, Landau worked as an acting coach in a venture with director Mark Rydell and screenwriter-playwriter Lyle Kessler.

Landau quit "Mission: Impossible" after three seasons in 1969 due to a contract dispute, according to THR. The cast included Steven Hill and later Peter Graves as the group's boss and Barbara Bain, then Landau's wife, as the sultry team member Cinnamon Carter.

A con artist at times, or a pickpocket, thug or other lowlife, Landau's Hand, the possessor of sleight of hand and various accents, also impersonated a bookseller, doctor, photographer or public prosecutor.

Normality for Landau meant he never became a Hollywood A-lister, but he saw a benefit in not being a highly sought-after actor.

Martin Landau spent the next two decades struggling to find worthy roles, and appeared in a large number of genre motion pictures and television series, notably the motion picture thrillers Alone in the Dark and Without Warning, and the sci-fi show Space: 1999.

He was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as Abe Karatz in Tucker in 1988 and again in 1989 for his portrayal of an adulterous husband in Woody Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanours.

Fortunately, Landau earned himself an enormous career resurgence in the late 1980s.

That role helped make him famous and propelled him to a career that includes roles in Cleopatra, The Greatest Story Ever Told and They Call Me Mister Tibbs! "I think he just could relate to it, and had been through enough ups and downs to understand Bela Lugosi", the Turner Classic Movies website quoted Burton as saying about Landau.
