RIP Martin Landau

One of the great character actors.

 

Ill always remember him best for his, in my opinion, career-best performance in Crimes and Misdemeanors.  So many good ones over the decades.

Mission impossible, Cosmos 99. A great part of my young years, if not Childhood. Time passes.

Very sad news :(

 

I met him in 1987 at a party in Hollywood. A memorable couple of hours during which he told me that his last film was going to be scored by John Williams (as I explained here).

 

A great man and a superb actor. Thank you Martin.

First Romero now Landau, what the hell.

 

Everyone's gonna bring up Ed Wood as they should, but lets not forget that one of Landau's earliest roles was as Vandamn's accomplish Leonard in North By Northwest. He was also superb in Crimes & Misdemeanors. Great actor. RIP!

I haven't seen Landau in much, but I've always been a big fan of him when he showed up. North by Northwest and Ed Wood have been mentioned already, but he was also hilarious in The Hallelujah Trail.

I always loved this guy and his characters.  I wasn't a big fan of the X-Files, was he in it?  RIP.

Yes, he was a Syndicate member who gives information to Mulder. He appears only in the first movie. 

 

He was good in a role that essentially goes nowhere.

Isn't most of Fight the Future like that? It can snap into or out of the chronology of the show with few repercussions on the rest of the series. To that end, characters introduced in the film die or aren't seen again on the show (or the actor comes back as someone else).
