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!

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).

X-Files did it both ways, really.  They would have fixed recurring characters and then you'd have someone like Terry O'Quinn play three different characters.  Regarding Landau in the movie, it's perfectly self-contained and works fine.  Not sure why someone would think it goes nowhere.

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.

 

Yes, surely one of the great ones of his generation.

 

While he never appeared in a feature film scored by Williams, he did appear in a couple of episodes of CHECKMATE.
