Character actor, Martin Landau, was born on Jun 20, 1928 in Brooklyn, NY. Landau died at the age of 89 on Jul 15, 2017 in Los Angeles, CA .
Martin Landau was an American actor reminiscent of Raymond Massey but with a more desperate look. He seemed set for a prolific film career after his second-lead villain in Alfred Hitchcock's "North by Northwest", but, in fact, made very few films, getting tied up in the television series "Mission Impossible" (as Rollin Hand) and "Space 1999" (as Commander John Koenig), in both of which he appeared with his wife Barbara Bain (1957-1993, divorced).
