Martin Landau, one of the most decorated actors in Hollywood history has passed today at the age of 89 after “unexpected complications” during a stay at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
His role as Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton’s Ed Wood earned him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, and he would keep working in roles from Frankenweenie to Entourage.
His chosen roles would consistently ground movies with performances that would be unforgettable. Cult film Rounders would be fun, but ultimately nothing without his guiding hand as Abe Petrovsky.
