I loved his subtle performance in Rounders.

His Bela Lugosi was brilliant.

Re: Martin Landau Dead at Age 89

Man, what an actor. I remember when I was 15 and all mad he won over Gary Sinise for Forrest Gump. The next year, I finally saw all the rest of the Best Picture nominees and understood better what brilliance was all up against Gump that year. Then I saw Ed Wood and I understood why he won.

I hope when he gets to heaven, he shouts, "All right, let's shoot this fucker!"

You're just now figuring that out? Life is short, everyone dies, and the universe doesn't care. Every once in a while someone does something cool, like a Martin Landau performance. Its the occasional cool stuff that makes life worthwhile.

I remember his "feud" with Kennedy from MTV years ago. I guess he was in a bad mood and was an asshole to her, because she didn't know or understand some reference he had made and he got pissed.
It was for the Mission Impossible film premiere; she didn't know he was in the original series.

Yikes, that takes three seconds of research, even in 1996.

Yep.

Though as I recall, he hated the movie and what they did with the Jim Phelps character.
