"We're told Martin died at 1:30 PM PT Saturday at UCLA Medical Center after a short hospitalization where he suffered unexpected complications", TMZ reported. Nicholson once credited his acting abilities to Landau. It's insane if you think about it. But you didn't necessarily have to take the lessons to learn from him; merely watching him onscreen was a master class in how to work with whatever you're given.

Landau's acting dreams came true in 1955 when he auditioned for Lee Strasberg and was accepted into the Actors Studio.

His stage debut was in summer 1951 in "Detective Story" at the Peaks Island Playhouse in Maine.

Hitchcock, an early admirer, cast him in his most memorable early role, as espionage ringleader James Mason's closeted gay minion Leonard in "North by Northwest" (1959).

Although he had previously been nominated for an Oscar, Landau broke through and won the golden statue for his best supporting actor portrayal of horror movie legend Bela Lugosi in the 1994 film, "Ed Wood", directed by Tim Burton. The film starred Jeff Bridges in the real-life story of industrialist Preston Tucker, who mounts a star-crossed attempt to challenge the Big Three automakers with a new auto.

'I turned down Star Trek.

The silver screen star was always one to look on the upside and bring the struggles of daily life into his performances. "It would've been torturous", Landau revealed in 2011 (via THR).

"In size and dimension, it's probably the best role I've had since 'Cleopatra, ' and my 10 best scenes in "Cleopatra" weren't in the movie", he told The New York Times. "I mean, I couldn't even get in the room". The actor became a source of inspiration for newcomers in the entertainment industry. "Who wants to do that?" His most recent appearances have been in Without a Trace, Entourage, Remember, The Last Poker Game, and a Lifetime biopic about sex symbol Anna Nicole Smith. 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".

He is survived by his two daughters, Juliet (an actress, known for Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Susie (a writer-producer), a sister, and one grandchild.
