OT:Martin Landau Dead At 89
Jul 17th, 2017 at 2:30pm
Print Post  
Martin Landau, a talented and prolific character actor who achieved TV stardom in “Mission: Impossible” and won an Oscar for his portrayal of a washed-up Bela Lugosi in the sweetly bizarre 1994 film “Ed Wood,” has died at age 89.


Landau also is remembered for a role he did not get. He was “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry’s first pick to portray pointy-eared Vulcan Mr. Spock, an iconic role that eventually went to Leonard Nimoy.

Nimoy then replaced Landau on “Mission: Impossible” when he left in a salary dispute.

R.I.P.

I always liked Martin Landau, .. especially in the old T.V. series, 'Mission Impossible'!

You do remember his former wife, don't you?

Barbara Bain, .. she also starred on Mission Impossible with the character name, 'Cinnamon'.

Sorry, I wasn't much of a Treky and got him confused with Lenard Nimoy, who was Spock and replaced Landau on Mission Impossible..

" Although Landau was in the running for the role of Mr. Spock on Star Trek, he ended up signing on to the series Mission: Impossible instead, opposite his then-wife Barbara Bain. After three seasons, the couple exited the show due to a contract dispute. (In an ironic twist, Leonard Nimoy, aka Spock, replaced Landau on MI). "

It's always a salary dispute.
