In more recent years, Landau appeared in The X-Files, Rounders, and 9, and he earned multiple Emmy nominations for his work on Without A Trace. As he told Talk Of The Nation Host Neal Conan in 2010, he quit the News five years later to give acting a shot.

"And I just said to myself, 'One day I'm going to get up to bat and I'm gonna hit a home run.' It's as simple as that". Landau was best friends with James Dean and a one-time beau of legendary actress Marilyn Monroe, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

He made his Broadway debut in Paddy Chayefsky's Middle of the Night alongside his idol, Robinson. Landau performed as the henchman for one of the main characters. "I will miss his work".

Instead, however, he was stuck in roles as sinister heavies. He would go on to have a varied career that saw him easily move between film and television roles at a time when not many other actors did.

The veteran of the Actors Studio, for which he was West Coast co-artistic director, had many ups and downs in his career.

Interviewers often asked Landau to reflect on his early years as an actor.

The actor's publicist, Dick Guttman said: "We are overcome with sadness".

The operation would continue with security forces moving further south along the main road to the town of Garmsir, officials said. The report commended Afghanistan's security forces, saying fewer civilians were caught in the crossfire compared to a year ago .

Landau is survived by his daughters Susie and Juliet from his ex-wife Bain, whom he divorced in 1993, as well as his sister Elinor, granddaughter Aria, and godson Dylan.

Though he worked consistently, his movie career didn't kick into high gear again until he was 60.

It wasn't until Francis Ford Coppola cast Landau in 1988's Tucker: The Man and His Dream that the looming, austere-looking actor escaped B-movie oblivion.

Oscar-winning actor Martin Landau, mostly known for films like "North by Northwest", "Crimes and Misdemeanors" and "Ed Wood", passed away here.

For me, he'll always be John Koenig from Space: 1999, a show about that time in the now-past when the moon was ripped out of Earth's orbit and the intrepid crew of its moonbase continued to pilot the dislocated satellite through unknown regions of the cosmos.

His performance in "Ed Wood" earned him an Academy Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe Award. The two actors were nearly castmates on Star Trek, but Landau famously turned down the role of Mr. Spock, insisting he couldn't bear the thought of playing such an unemotional character.

'I turned down Star Trek. He also appeared in Sleepy Hollow, Frankenweenie, and the Burton-produced 9. "I would've probably died playing that role".

Landau had a rare leading-man part in "Lovely, Still" (2008), a tepidly received romance co-starring Ellen Burstyn, about an older couple's love affair.
