Landau had been a cartoonist before starting his acting career in the ’50s. He appeared in nearly 200 films and TV shows during his lustrous career and worked until his death. His big break came in 1966 when he was cast as Rollin Hand in the “Mission: Impossible” TV series alongside his wife Barbra Bain. The role got him repeatedly for Emmys and helped him nab the Best Male TV Star Golden Globe in 1968.

Landau was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award in 1988 for his role in Francis Ford Coppola’s “Tucker: The Man and His Dream.” He didn’t win but clenched another Golden Globe win for the role. He was nominated for another Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Woody Allen’s “Crimes and Misdemeanors” and finally won in 1994 for his portrayal of Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton’s biopic “Ed Wood.”
