    IMHO Landau and Barbara Bain was the heart of Mission Impossible. I loved Nimoy but it was never the same after Landau left.

    Ironic that his final film is likely to be "The Last Poker Game".

    RIP Martin.

    Landau was terrific in one of Woody Allen's best films, 'Crimes and Misdemeanors.'

    He was a great actor and who got even better at his craft as the years went by. We should all be so fortunate.

    He was amazing. The first X-Files movie wouldn't have been near as good without his loopy portrayal for Dr. Kurzweil. And Space: 1999 was a favorite of mine.
    Jim is left the building. He has a life to attempt to recover. If you care to reach him, you may do so in the usual places. Only not here.

    I've seen him in a lot of stuff, but I remember him most from The Majestic. The film had Jim Carrey as a blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter during the Red Scare who has a drunk driving accident and winds up with amnesia in a small town. The locals mistake him for a missing WW2 hero and he, not knowing who he is, goes with it. Martin Landau plays the war hero's father and owner of the Majestic, a movie theater that was run down....without giving away much more, I just thought it was a a great performance by both Carrey and Landau. It's very Frank Capra-esque, but it works. I'm too young to remember his early work, but that film sticks out in my mind. RIP, Martin

    I liked "The Majestic" a lot. It wasn't a great movie but it was very good and, as you said, Martin Landau and Jim Carrey were great in it.

    I can't post images, but Martin Landau looked a lot like John Hodiak to me.

    I worked with him in the early 90's on an HBO movie titled "Cast a Deadly Spell" , about HP Lovecraft. A very nice man.
