Martin died at 1:30 PM PT Saturday at UCLA Medical Center after a short hospitalization where he suffered unexpected complications. He was 89.
Landau had been a cartoonist before starting his acting career in the ’50s. He appeared in nearly 200 films and TV shows during his lustrous career and worked until his death, explains the site.
Outside of starring in Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest and Cleopatra, one role many Bloody Disgusting readers will remember is that of Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton’s 1994 Ed Wood, which landed him an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
He also appeared in several genre television offerings from “The Twilight Zone” (pictured below) to “The Alfred Hitchcock Hour”, “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” and “The X-Files”.
We send our thoughts and prayers to his friends and family.
